Do you support those on low-incomes in Bracknell Forest Council area?

Helen and Gemma are running training on “Energy and water bills – essential advice and awareness for practitioners supporting those on low-incomes”

Online training via Zoom Tuesday March 22nd 2022 10.30am – 12pm

Helen delivers CCB’s Family Fuel and Water Poverty Project and is a subject matter expert.

This session will provide training, advice, and useful information to practitioners that work with low-income and vulnerable individuals, including families, those with long-term health conditions, and the elderly.

Bracknell Forest Council is funding this training.

Learners will know and understand the definition of fuel poverty, and how to advise and support the clients they work with to save money on their bills through a variety of ways.

This includes:

· Discounts available to those on low incomes – Warm Home Discount, Thames Water Discounts

· Funding for insulation and boiler improvements for low-income households

· Reducing costs by reducing energy usage

· The Priority Services Register for those with health conditions/vulnerability

· Dealing with debt, and trust funds for grants for debt

· Comparing costs and switching to get the best deal

· Useful sources of information

Those attending this training at the beginning of March stated “The trainer was excellent, and the course content was entirely useful for us”

“The training increased my awareness of the availability of so many energy discounts and grants, and gave good tips about personal choices (on energy usage at home).”
