Severn Wye’s Fuel Poverty Awareness CPD training returns.

As fuel prices continue to rise, an increasing number of Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire residents are struggling to adequately heat their homes, with knock-on effects for their health and well-being.

This training aims to tackle the problem by looking at the causes of fuel poverty and the actions that can be taken to overcome it.

By the end of the session participants should feel confident in identifying clients who might be struggling, offering them some basic energy advice and signposting them to services that can help, including sources of grant funding to improve their properties.

It is particularly relevant to frontline professionals working with vulnerable clients in the following sectors:

  • health and social care
  • child and family services
  • advisory, community and voluntary organisations
  • education
  • public sector and local councillors
  • housing providers

Funded by the local authorities through Severn Wye’s ‘Warm and Well’ project, the training is free of charge and can be delivered at a venue of your choosing.

It is fully accredited through the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Certification Service, so can be counted towards any CPD goals, and lasts between 60 – 90 minutes.

While groups of 10 or more are preferred, we are happy to accommodate smaller numbers where possible.
