Fighting Fuel Poverty will be a pilot project run by Rushmoor Healthy Living charity to help vulnerable families who are at risk of fuel poverty. The Project will employ a full time Energy Bill Advisor to provide a wide range of energy efficiency services from advice, providing measures when appropriate or support to apply for energy efficiency grants from a range of organisations. A referral network will be developed between the project and other organisations to help address other issues clients may be facing such as debt. The area has a number of indices which indicate that it suffers from fuel poverty therefore the advisor will deliver a range of one to one advice surgeries and workshops in local schools and community centres, to address these.
