Greenwich residents who are over 60, caring for a young or vulnerable person, or are having problems paying their winter fuel bills could benefit from the 'Stay Warm Stay Safe' winter campaign. People with mental health problems, learning disabilities, physical or sensory impairments are also encouraged to take advantage of the support available.

The campaign, launched by Royal Borough of Greenwich last week, aims to provide extra services, advice and support for residents who may be at risk during the cold weather. The following help is available:

A free room thermometer

  • Benefit checks by the Royal Borough's Welfare Rights Service
  • Home Fire Safety visits by the London Fire Brigade
  • Energy Efficiency Assessments
  • Advice and help on keeping fuel bills down
  • Advice on flu jabs
  • Advice on keeping active and healthy in the winter months 

If you think you could benefit from the 'Stay Warm Stay Safe' scheme, or if you know of any residents that may be at risk, please contact the Stay Warm Stay Safe service on 0800 470 4831.
