Free fuel poverty training available

Local energy companies are funding a series of free training sessions to help front line workers identify and offer advice on fuel poverty.

The sessions were developed by Groundwork Green Doctors and are funded by Northern Powergrid and Northern Gas Networks. Delivered over half a day, they will teach you to recognise the scale, severity and signs of fuel poverty, offer basic advice and refer individuals for more in-depth help.

The next course takes place online on January 11th, and further sessions are planned for February and March. To find out more and register your interest, please contact
