In October, Helen provided a training session on all aspects of reducing home energy costs, to Community Engagement Officers in Wokingham. They estimated they would be able to cascade the information to over 500 members of the community that they support in the next six months.
Deana Humphries, Manager of Wokingham Community Engagement Team said “The training provided was really helpful and informative. We work with customers who can be isolated and vulnerable, and who quite often have debt issues. Having the knowledge and confidence in providing them with the right advice to help them get not only cheaper gas and electricity, but also discounts grants, and also teach them ways of reducing their costs, will prove invaluable in extending the services we provide.”
Helen is putting on a training session for professionals who work with low-income and vulnerable groups on January 23rd 2019. This will cover signposting and advising clients on ways they can reduce their home energy costs, and making significant cost savings, including claiming The Warm Home Discount of £140.
