Keeping warm in winter

Keeping warm over winter months can help prevent colds, flu or other health problems.

The CAB Winter Warmth Line

The Winter Warmth Line is available from 2 December 2013 until February 2014. The service is for any Southwark resident needing support with finding the right fuel deal, making their home as energy efficient as possible, making sure they are getting all the financial support they are entitled to and negotiating with energy companies over fuel debt.

The numbers to call are tel: 0800 0901 948 and tel: 0333 3218 323.

Callers will be asked to leave their contact details and will be phoned back within three working days. A CAB adviser will then work out with the caller the best course of action to tackle their difficulties.

Southwark Circle

Southwark Circle is a membership organisation that can provide all members with low cost workers to help with practical tasks around the home. This could include fiitting draught excluders, which help keep homes warmer in colder months.

Emergency action in extreme weather

In the event of extreme weather, the befrienders will also do emergency shopping for essentials and odd-jobs so that older people don't have to go out in the snow.

The council may also provide safe heaters, which can be delivered if its absolutely necessary.
