Mr Seery is a carer for his disabled wife but also has his own health problems, including heart and breathing problems. He was referred to Warm Zones by Age UK.
After on-going assistance and support from the Warm Zones Benefits Advisor, Mr Seery was awarded higher rate Attendance Allowance which then entitled him to an increase in his Pension Credits. Warm Zones also helped him apply for a Blue Badge for parking. The total gain secured for the couple was £13,147 p.a. plus a one-off arrears payment of £3,140.
Warm Zones also installed a new gas boiler, using ECO funding and local Warm Zone gap funding. Now the Seerys can enjoy a warmer, healthier home and be free of the financial worries previously associated with paying their fuel bills.
