Cold to Cosy Homes Cumbria: Energy Champions training for frontline workers
Wed 26 April @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
This energy champions training session is a free webinar especially for frontline workers who help and care for others through their work, either in people’s homes or in the community.
It’s an ideal information session for public facing workers, healthcare professionals, carers, social workers, or anyone in an employed or voluntary role which involves dealing with people who might benefit from having a warmer home and lower energy bills. Previous delegates have been attached to Age UK, Citizens Advice, local councils, housing departments, social housing providers, healthcare providers, care organisations and the fire service.
CAfS’ Cold to Cosy Homes Cumbria service is free to a wide range of eligible Cumbrian householders. The service offers free home energy advice either over the phone or a home visit. The advice will look at bills and tariffs, suggest and install free energy saving equipment and identify eligibility for further support. Attending this session aims to help you to support your clients to get warmer, dryer, less draughty homes to improve their physical and mental wellbeing, and of course lower their energy bills.
This one-hour session will cover the Cold to Cosy Homes service offer, who is eligible, how to make a referral and more. On completion, you’ll have all the information you need to share information about the service with your clients and patients to make sure the people you support can benefit from it.
Cumbria Action for Sustainability have been helping people to save energy in their homes for more than 20 years. We run the Cold to Cosy Homes Cumbria service in conjunction with the Local Energy Advice Partnership (LEAP) and councils and local authorities in Cumbria, supported by funding from the Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme.
