Surviving Winter Grant

2020/2021 Applications now open for Swindon residents 

The Surviving Winter grant can provide households with £200 to help with winter fuel costs. This is in addition to the winter fuel payment that everyone over 60 receives.


Grants are made from funds raised by the Wiltshire Community Foundation’s annual Surviving Winter campaign and there is no automatic entitlement to the grant if you fulfil the eligibility criteria.

To be eligible for a grant someone must;

  • be resident for the Borough of Swindon


And fall into one of the categories below;

  • be pensionable age and affected by fuel poverty

  • be of working age with a disability or a long-term health condition which affects their ability to keep warm

Grants are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
