Fyne Homes help tenants with cost of living crisis

On a hill overlooking Glen Barr sits three wind turbines constructed and operated by Fyne Homes subsidiary company Fyne Energy.

Part of the agreement for the project of installing the three wind turbines on the Kintyre Peninsula was that any profit from the running of the turbines would be distributed across three initiatives: investment into the local community of Glenbarr, assisting in funding Fyne Future in its various projects and investment into Fyne Homes.

Following a recommendation from Fyne Energy chair, Tony Harrison, Fyne Homes Committee agreed that their allocation of profit would be distributed directly to its tenants to assist with the cost of heating their homes. This will be allocated in the form of vouchers, which will be sent out directly to tenants during December and can be redeemed at the Post Office. The vouchers are only valid for 1 month.

James McMillan, chair of the Fyne Homes Committee, said: “We know times are hard for many Fyne Homes tenants across Argyll & Bute just now. Supporting people through these challenging times is important to us and I’m pleased to announce these payments to Fyne homes tenants to help with the cost of living.”

These sentiments were echoed by Fyne Homes chief executive, Iona MacPhail, who added: “Fyne Homes are determined to do all we can to support our tenants. These payments will further enhance the support available to tenants from the Association. Any tenants who are struggling to make ends meet should contact us – we are always here to help.”

The vouchers can be put towards energy costs, food or whatever may assist tenant households at this time.

To redeem the vouchers, tenants will have to take either photo ID or a recent utility bill to the post office, along with the voucher.

Over £130,000 is being distributed among Fyne Homes tenants with this initiative, which will help with what is a difficult time for all.
