Home not Hospital Scheme
Barnet Care & Repair Agency
The British Red Cross (Home Not Hospital Service)
Barnet Care & Repair is an active partner in the Home Not Hospital scheme, delivering the Winter Well scheme to address fuel poverty and excessively cold housing in Barnet, to prevent unnecessary illness and cold related deaths.
The Warm & Healthy Homes Fund allowed the Winter Well scheme to further help individuals who were susceptible to fuel poverty, enabling a more long-lasting solution for the individual. It maximised the support offered and enabled additional energy efficiency measures to be installed.
The Home Not Hospital service received referrals of vulnerable residents in need of assistance after a stay in hospital, and this project dovetailed with the excellent referral mechanisms and partnering arrangements already in place to further tackle fuel poverty and cold related illness in Barnet.
