    Hello @donnasykes

    Good to meet you, welcome to the community, it's good that you are planning ahead to the cold months and trying to get a plan in place of what you are going to do. I am not sure of the answer to your question but I have moved your discussion to our carers category and altered the title somewhat so that other members have more of an idea of the subject.

    Hi @donnasykes - & welcome to the community from me also. Perhaps also of relevance is what benefits do you claim?
