Charity offers older people energy efficient appliances
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 BCOPÂ¹s handyman scheme, an initiative where minor repairs are carried out within peopleÂ¹s 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.
