Kirkless Warm Zone
The project aims recruit, train and support one Benefits Screener on a one year contract to work within SKCAB. The Screener will provide a comprehensive assessment including benefits health checks and further active claims assistance where required. They will have a special responsibility to deliver this service to households living in fuel poverty that include children under 16 years old. The benefits screening work will also increase the installation of free energy efficiency measures by securing more qualifying benefits for householders. The Benefits Screener will work closely with the KWZ team, ensuring the most comprehensive, co-ordinated and effective service provision.
