Aiming Beyond Cancer
The ABC scheme ‘Aiming Beyond Cancer’ was intended to offer support utilising a dedicated early intervention home visit service offering energy efficiency measures and support advice to identified priority households in the Western Isles with a diagnosed cancer sufferer.
The ABC scheme had an original budget of £150,000 which enabled heating upgrades to be delivered for 23 clients. In the final weeks of the scheme TIG were awarded an additional £20,000 of underspend funding and this enabled a further five clients to receive measures bringing the total number of clients receiving assistance from the ABC scheme to 28.
The work has been received with gratitude from qualifying clients and their families and the close working relationship with Macmillan has resulted in benefits to the value of £66,527.62 being awarded to 17 ABC clients.
