· Available for Community Card Holders

· Lined curtains, i.e. 2 layers of material, make them thermally efficient and are a good step towards a healthy home, reducing power and medical bills. Together with insulation and draught stoppers around windows and doors this can prevent up to 60% of heat loss.

· The order forms can be picked up at the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) in Otaki. Your agencies has some copies of the order form as well. Plus order forms can be downloaded from the website of the Sustainability Trust
The completed forms should be dropped at the Citizens Advice Bureau between 04-22 Mar. We send them all together to Wellington, where the donated curtains are made to fit their windows.

· We expect that the curtains will be ready around early to mid May, just in time before it starts to get cold. Curtains can be picked up from the CAB - we will let them know when they are ready to be picked up.

· Further information on insulation for houses and what subsidies are available to make houses warmer and healthier go the Sustainability Trust - Subsidies & Finance.

· 2018 this initiative helped 45 families, who have a community services card, in Otaki. Among them many families with children. Curtains are for the main living ad sleeping areas.

· The Mobile Curtain Bank is an initiative supported by Energise Otaki Inc., the Kapiti Coast District Council, the Citizens Advice Bureau Otaki in partnership with the Sustainability Trust in Wellington.
