Elderley and Disabled Residents who are going without heating or hot water because they cannot afford to pay for repairs to their Boilers or pipework
This initiative has been in place for around 12 months and we are seeking help to support the cost of running this within our community, we have applied for funding from Santander and other funding companies that we hope to hear back from soon.
We are looking at expanding this with public awareness and making it available in as many cities as possible and as many communities.
From December the 1st up to March 1st every year we will be running this initiative to help as many as we can. We have helped 11 customers up to date that did not expect this and were shocked but happy at what was on offer, they thought it was a goverment scheme until it was explained.
You can find the link on our website at www.northernplumbingandheating.co.uk
I want this project to run 12 months of the year and i am seeking other plumbers in every city within the uk to give their free time to help the elderly and disabled in their communities.
A free phone number will be available as soon as possible so customers can contact us direct and we can then organise a local plumber to visit their homeb and carry out the life saving repair.
We have a trustee already and will be appointing 2 more so we can then register this initiative as a charity and gain a charity number so we can apply for gift aid and other benefits to help the needy in our society.
This initiative can and will save lives and also show the vulnerable that there are people in the commubity that care about them and about their safety.
This will bring us together again as the caring and strong country that we are known to be world wide.
When you go to a property and you see the worry and upset that the elderly and disabled have to bare makes you stand and thing about your humanity, the issues they have to face day by day and the battles they have gone through and are yet to face puts them in a position of vulnrability. When we arrive at the property we become the friendly face and the person with answers to their problem, we dont judge and we dont ask questions.Our aim is to repair and make safe with the intention of showing them that there is a helping hand when it is needed.
The smile on the faces is worth all the gold on the earth, and knowing that they are safe and warm is a feeling that will never be beaten.
We have Repaired many boilers and heating appliances within the las 6 months and we have fitted a new boiler for a blind lady within the last 2 weeks.
