The Parish Council is pleased to draw attention to BCP’s important Winter support scheme to help vulnerable residents across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
The winter support scheme follows a recent allocation of over £1million to BCP council from the government’s COVID Winter Grant Scheme to ensure vulnerable residents are able to access the support they need to address food and energy insecurity over the winter period.
A huge community support effort is underway to help the most vulnerable families and households who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic this year.
Local residents who are struggling to afford food and keep warm over the winter months are urged to reach out for support from BCP Council and its partners, who are co-ordinating efforts to ensure people can access the support they need over the winter period.
