Case Studies

Mr Morley

Mr Morley, 73, has a range of health issues including asbestosis, pleural plaques and prostate cancer.  Following a home survey, as part of a local project with his Council, we identified that he required additional home insulation. We installed loft insulation free of charge using the Warm Zones Fund.  This was enough to take the energy efficiency rating of Mr Morley’s home into EPC band C.

Mr Morley also agreed to have a benefits entitlement review which quickly identified that he was eligible for an enhanced Attendance Allowance. The Warm Zones advisor helped him complete the form and apply, which secured an additional boost to Mr Morley’s annual income of over £1,440 with a one-off back payment of £218.

Warm Zones also helped Mr Morley to claim help with his hospital travel costs as he was struggling to afford taxis to the hospital for all the various treatments he had been having.

Often people are in receipt of benefits but don’t realise that they are entitled to more because their circumstances have changed since they applied for them. Securing additional income for someone like Mr Morley can make a big impact on their life and their ability to heat their home.
