Referral Partners

Cold Homes have a negative impact on thousands of households locally.

Many of those who are affected may already be using your services in some way. We can offer you and your service users a pathway to help address their health and housing needs. We are a niche charity and our approach to this is from the housing side, not the health side.

We would also welcome the opportunity to refer others to you, especially if they need help with benefits checks or accessing additional support for home improvements.

This list isn’t exhaustive, but we are particularly interested in working with:

  • Local Age UKs and Citizen’s Advice
  • Hospital discharge teams and admissions avoidance
  • Social care teams
  • VCSA members
  • GPs practices/ Social prescribing projects
  • Occupational therapists
  • Faith networks
  • Housing charities

Our Climate Emergency. This pressure will continue to build on all of us. There is a connection between your current work which puts marginalised people at the heart of all that you do. We feel this is the social floor in the diagram below, which you are helping to shore up. At some stage we will also have to face our ecological breakdown, and that many of the poorest will be most affected. Can we work together to start addressing this?
