Getting residents ready for winter

The Porchfield Centre in Croxteth hosted a Winter Warmer event and gave much needed advice and support to local residents.

The city’s council’s Healthy Homes team, supported by organisations including United Utilities and National Energy Action provided information on issues such as:

• Fuel Poverty
• Debt
• Energy efficiency
• Financial assistance
• Healthy living
• Keeping Active
• Social inclusion

Councillor Gerard Woodhouse, Mayoral Lead for Older People, said: “The winter survival campaign is aimed at preventing avoidable deaths and we are committed to getting messages out about how our older people can stay warm, safe and active during the winter months.”

Croxteth ward councillor Anthony Lavelle added: “Thanks to the Porchfield Centre for making us welcome and helping us spread the word about the help and support that is out there to tackle the issues associated with fuel poverty.”
