On 6 September 2011, the ScottishPower Energy People Trust and 40 fuel poverty practitioners were welcomed to Glasgow city chambers by Baille Liz Cameron. The seminar was the idea of trustees who invited organisations from throughout Scotland, England and Wales to come together to discuss the projects funded to date to share ideas and best practice. Ann Loughrey Trustee and Company Secretary said "It's amazing to think that in just 5 years the SP energy people trust has helped more than 1.5 million households with donations of £9 million to organisations throughout Britain." G.HEAT is one of the projects to benefit from funding and offers independent advice to Glasgow households. Graeme Mullin Project Manager said "ScottishPower Energy people Trust has been extremely generous in providing the funding we require to ensure the success of this project." The Helens Partnerships in Merseyside also received funding from the trust and targets help towards lone parents, young people, the elderly and those with disability. Liz Howse Affordable Warmth Project officer said " we are committed to tackling fuel poverty in St Helens and this funding has already provided valuable support to more than 450 households."
