A Warmer Deal for Wirral project will involve employing an Energy Adviser, who will be trained in Level 3 Award in Energy Awareness City & Guilds, for 21 hours a week and will identify the potential to improve the energy efficiency in a range of dwellings and to explain the Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation to beneficiaries and refer to approved companies to undertake work where appropriate. They will be able to provide benefit health checks to households and to advise on working and claiming benefits such as working tax credits and to ensure the Warm Home Discount Scheme is claimed for “broader groups” and will refer beneficiaries to our in house Debt Adviser to negotiate debts and/or reduce / cancel debts for household electricity or gas supply by applying to individual Energy Trusts on behalf of beneficiaries.
