This project aims to help vulnerable customers (i.e. families, unemployed and elderly) in the socially and economically deprived area of Tranmere in, or at risk of, fuel poverty. The project will aim to do this through income maximisation (benefit health checks), raising awareness of energy efficiency grants and advice available, addressing clients energy debts and providing support at court if needed. The project will employ a part time worker to deal specifically with client's energy queries, either through home visits, or when clients phone or visit the existing Tranmere Alliance advice service.
