This workshop is an introduction into what fuel poverty is and will provide an overview of energy advice topics including: heating systems and controls, damp and mould prevention, energy saving behaviours and low-cost measures. The workshop will also cover who to signpost people to for more support, and what grant schemes and discounts are available for people who want to improve their homes or are struggling with their bills. The aim is to equip clerks with the knowledge of how to respond to the fuel crisis, and support local residents.
