Balanced Lives Warm Hubs

Practical help and support during the cost of living crisis

Action For Elders Balanced Lives Warm Hubs are providing much needed help for the older community during the cold weather. We are offering blankets, hot soup and practical advice to help people struggling to cope during the cost of living crisis.

The huge rise in energy and food bills has hit older people especially hard, with many having to choose between heating and eating. Action For Elders work at the heart of the older community with regular weekly exercise, wellbeing and social programmes. By donating to our Emergency Winter Appeal you can make a  huge difference to the lives of older people this winter.

Balanced Lives Warm Hubs

Our Balanced Lives Support Hubs are located at some of our popular Balanced Lives programme locations, they will provide a warm, friendly and safe place for the older community.

We also have a weekly Winter Warmer Event at the National Waterfront Museum, offering hot soup and beverages, plus a classic film every Monday. We also have cost of living advice and digital support with our tech expert Adrian Scott. This event is being run in partnership with Swansea Council and the National Waterfront Museum.

“We aim to provide a safe, friendly haven with practical help to tackle the cost of living crisis and give people a positive outlook on the future,” said Chief Operating Officer, Vicki Evans.
