Detail

This local authority circular - LAC (DH)(2012)2 - explains the arrangements for applying for funding from the warm homes healthy people fund in the financial year 2012/2013.

Local authorities are invited to make an application for funding from the warm homes healthy people fund by 5pm on Friday 5 October 2012.  The aim of the fund is to support local authorities in the coming winter to reduce the levels of deaths and illness in their local authority that are due to vulnerable people living in cold housing in partnership with their local community and voluntary sector and statutory organisations.

On 11 September 2012, Dr Felicity Harvey, Director General of Public Health, Department of Health, wrote to all ‘upper tier’ local authorities advising them of her decision to establish the warm homes healthy people fund (WHHP) again for the coming winter 2012/ 2013.
