The Age UK Wiltshire Surviving Winter Grant (SWG) scheme is aimed at older people at risk of fuel poverty and aims to support them by providing a one-off £200 grant alongside holistic advice to help ensure they are maximising their income and receiving support for any other issues they may have.

It has been running on an annual basis for a number of years and is organised and fundraised through Wiltshire Community Foundation. It is likely to remain open until around March 2022 time (but may close sooner if all grants are distributed).

Please see the poster attached.

Please note that for working-age people, Wiltshire Warm & Safe ( is the partner organisation supporting these clients to apply for the grant (the criteria for working age clients is slightly different).
