In 2017, having witnessed a plumber from a heating company try to fraud an elderly and disabled person out of thousands of pounds ( £5500,00 ) East Lancashire plumber and business owner James Anderson decided to do something about it.
He set up DEPHER CIC ( Disabled and Elderly Plumbing and Heating Emergency Response ) as a registered Community Interest Company.
We have assisted and helped over seven Thousand families ( 7249 ) up to date with free or massively reduced installations and thousands of FREE repairs, saving not just suffering and stopping rouge traders but also saving many lives.
During the Covid Pandemic we re adjusted and did what we had to do to protect the community, we may need to do this again and are ready to step in and help in a moments notice, elderly, disabled, vulnerable and all care workers we are here and we will be by your side until this is over.
We do not want praise because this is what we choose to do and we know it is the right thing to do.
But without support from the public we will not be able to deliver the life saving service that is needed every single day, please if you can spare just a small amount of support then you will, together save a life in our communities.
All funding will go direct to were it is needed THE COMMUNITY
And that is a promise
ELDERLY, DISABLED AND VULNERABLE members of the community
*** The cold winters, Rouge traders and Massive costs including Borrowing what they cannot afford with Losing independence makes them Choose between Heating and Eating, this is a terrible thing to have to do at any age, especially in 2020. ***

Many Rogue traders Take advantage of the elderly as well as the disabled, they are picked on because of their age or health issues and seen as an easy target, Depher cic will remove this situation and danger by enabling every elderly and disabled person in the United Kingdom access to our services 24 hours a day.

Mandy Clarke, Mar 28 2020 Your generosity is wonderful James I've worked with you via the Princes Trust as you took on young people for work experience where others had failed them, Many kind regards, Mandy
Ian, Mar 10 2020 Hi there. Saw your story on Russell Howard's show, out here in New Zealand. Love what you're doing. I'd hate to think of any of my relatives being ripped off by some of these idiots. Nice one.
We are a community of humanity and together we can make this world a better place for now and the future.
Please help Depher cic to deliver the dream to not hundreds and thousands but MILLIONS.
Thank you so much
Last year over 50,000 people died because of cold homes and fuel poverty, depher will work hard and quickly to reduce this number every year. " There are thousands of elderly and disabled people in our towns, cities and communities that suffer in silence because they are either too proud or too scared to ask for help when it comes to their Plumbing and Heating repairs ".
