Our Warmer Together campaign invites those who can afford to do so, to donate so we can provide extra support for less well off older neighbours this winter.
Of the 19,000 residents aged over 65 in Hammersmith and Fulham, over half have a long-term health problem or disability. 25% live in poverty. 43% live alone.
For many of the others, life is much more comfortable and enjoyable with support from friends and family.
Everyone aged 65 or over who receives a state pension automatically also receives a ‘Winter Fuel Allowance’ to contribute to the additional costs of heating during the winter.
That’s why we are inviting those who can afford to do so, to donate some of theirs to Warmer Together, to enable us to work together to provide extra support for less well-off older neighbours.
