Improving Energy Efficiency In Communities
In 2018-2019 NEA is continuing the roll-out of its successful Warm Home Discount Industry Initiative supported ‘Improving Energy Efficiency In Communities Project’ which aims to reduce the wider impacts of fuel poverty for households across England.
The project provides FREE basic energy awareness training to frontline practitioners within voluntary and statutory organisations who are in contact with low income and other vulnerable households at risk of fuel poverty. Training aims to equip individuals with the skills and knowledge to better identify and assist households who struggle to manage their energy needs and to maintain a warm and healthy home.
Organisations can also benefit from FREE energy advice surgeries/ awareness sessions to help their service users to better manage their energy use, access appropriate energy tariff and payment options as well as insulation and heating schemes, income maximisation, money and debt advice services.
NEA is providing all trainees and energy advice recipients with copies of a bespoke information leaflet to aid service signposting and referral.
The Improving Energy Efficiency In Communities project is national but has a key focus in the East Midlands, London, North East, North West, South East, South West and the Yorkshire & the Humber areas.
