SCF holds cold weather planning event
Somerset Community Foundation is working in partnership with Somerset’s Public Health team to pilot new ways of supporting community groups to mitigate the potential effects of severely cold weather on their service users and delivery.
We held a useful workshop this month in Taunton with a handful of groups to look at the impact of cold weather on their beneficiaries and service delivery, and how to minimise these risks. One of the major issues arising from workshop was the need for staff to be informed and able to advise clients how best to maximise energy efficiency in the home and this is an area the Foundation will be returning to later this autumn/ winter.
