Grower households urged to sign up to cold weather scheme
TRADE body, the UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA) is urging more oil heated households in the farming community aged 75 and over to sign up to its Cold Weather Priority scheme this winter, in a bid to help prevent excess winter deaths.
Originally launched in 2017, the Cold Weather Priority scheme is industry-led. UKIFDA Member suppliers can identify those most at risk from the cold and ensure they prioritise their deliveries throughout winter so they have enough fuel to keep warm during the coldest months.
The scheme is free and consumers only need to speak to their local UKIFDA fuel distributor about joining.
