The project aims to build and equip a discrete training area within an existing training centre which will provide practical energy efficiency advice to clients, many of whom are long-term unemployed, all of who are in receipt of benefits and most of whom fall into the definition of 'fuel poor'. The clients who will benefit from this project will already be enrolled on one of our training and employment initiatives under New Deal. Advice and practical help in energy efficiency will be incorporated into the client's training plan as part of our broad strategy and remit to change lifestyles and address poverty. The funding will be used to convert two offices into a training centre modelled on a typical domestic flat, where all appliances will be attached to meters that show power usage as well as paying 50% of the cost of employing a training and development officer.
