If you’re over 60, living in Hampshire and on a low income, you could be eligible for a grant from the Surviving Winter Fund to help you stay warm this winter.

If eligible, you could be awarded a grant of up to £100 (sometimes £125 in exceptional circumstances) to help you pay for heating, clothing or food.

The grant can be accessed through your local Citizens Advice service, where an adviser will check if you’re eligible and help you make the application for funding. They’ll also check if there are any other benefits you might be entitled to.

To find out more, call Citizens Advice Winchester District for free on 0808 278 7861 or email advice@cawinchesterdistrict.org.uk
