The hub will bring together a large network of community partners to support carers with tailored support services across Hampshire that help to tackle fuel poverty and introduce energy safeguards that help those most vulnerable maintain a safe and warm home.

A trust spokesperson said: “The partnership is designed to work alongside the Home and Well partnership in Hampshire, providing proactive and preventative support services increasing the support available to carers and those they care for. The shared ambition is to reduce the potential impact on the NHS service and prevent hospitalisation for high-risk people as a result of living in a cold and unhealthy home.”

By tackling issues such as fuel poverty, fuel debt, tariff issues and ensuring homes are safe by discussing issues such as carbon monoxide those at the hub hope to understand the needs of carers and the partnerships’ services will tailor the help they provide based on need.

A selection of newspapers will also be available to enjoy at the Hub, along with crossword puzzle books, games and jigsaws for the carers and their cared-for. Light refreshments are also provided.

Carers can enjoy a healthy lunch and their cared-for are most warmly welcomed.

The Home and Well Hub will take place at Augusta Park Community Centre, Andover, on Tuesday, January 23 from 10am-3pm.
