Case Studies

Mr & Mrs Seery

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 Zones 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.

When family circumstances change it is often overwhelming and there are many pressures including financial ones that can often result in not being able to cope. Through interventions like these Warm Zones is able to lighten the load for many households as they assist in both making the home more efficient to heat and increase the household income.
