Warm Connections is a part of Aberfeldy Parish Church - a Christian community which seeks to play an active and caring role in the wider community through its youth work, CAP (Christians Against Poverty), the Community Larder and one-off events.
Anna and Tom Sibbald have both spent many years working in outdoor education. Our passion for people and the environment have been threaded through all we do - at work, home and life in general. Out of these twin passions was born Warm Connections - an opportunity to help folk live more comfortably, save money and reduce their carbon footprint at home. We believe that this is only possible by taking a holistic, individual and integrated approach to home energy and green living.
Warm Connections encourages a ‘re-use’ and ‘shop local’ attitude, and where possible we use our local suppliers and businesses.
Warm Connections has an amazing team who help to shape what we do:
Bec works with the local migrant community. Her work is often connected to housing matters, utility bills and tenancies, and therefore links closely with that of Warm Connections.
Helen has a passion for the environment, climate change issues and experience of charity work in Uganda, all of which we share. Quietly determined to share good news, she uses her social media skills to ensure others know about the Repair Cafe, church eco events, and now Warm Connections.
Pat’s background is in vocational rehabilitation as an occupational therapist. Currently Pat works in her local village post office, which gives opportunities to have on-the-ground contact with people and hear what needs are relevant to people in our rural community.
Andrew is a retired consultant physician who is very involved in CAP and the Community Larder. He is very aware that living in a warm, dry home can improve the health of vulnerable people, and is determined to help.
We have a group of volunteers dedicated to creating and installing low-cost and no-cost measures for households who need a little extra help.
