Charity offers older people energy efficient appliances


Posted on September 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Birmingham-based charity Broadening Choices for Older People (BCOP) has linked up with the energy provider “npower” to distribute energy saving light bulbs and energy efficient kettles to older people in Birmingham. Older people are being offered these energy saving and environmentally friendly products through BCOP¹s handyman scheme, an initiative where minor repairs are carried out within people¹s homes. BCOP currently managers three nursing homes, one residential home, five sheltered housing schemes and 40 houses, flats and bungalows for independent living. Other services include low-cost home repairs and welfare advice.
