New Boilers for Family Day Centre for vulnerable


Many of the families attending The Family Haven Day Centre live in temporary accommodation, some can't afford the heating bills. Our day centre gives them somewhere safe and warm to come during the week; time when they don't have to pay to heat their homes. We need new boilers to ensure they are reliable next winter, and a bonus is that new boilers would be more energy efficient helping save money on utility bills enabling more of our funds to go to providing other services to our families.

The Family Haven is anxious to retain a measure of resilience in the provision of hot water and a warm and comfortable setting. Our first floor boiler: the controls are so hopelessly out of date namely the clock is a 24 hour one not a 7 day 24hr which means it runs at weekends when the building is not in use. Should it fail then a flood hitting our office and the kitchen would follow.


Replacing our old boilers will give us confidence in their reliability, and save money on utility bills. We are hoping to fund one of the boilers with this campaign. We would replace the upstairs boiler as this one is currently the most inefficient.

Long-Term Impact

Failure of a boiler will be catastrophic as it will mean we will have to close the day centre until it is fixed as we will be unable to provide hot water and a warm setting to our families.
