The project seeks to train Energy Efficiency Champions to help vulnerable, disadvantaged and disabled people understand energy efficiencies. The main aims are to support people with learning disabilities who live alone or with groups of friends, to be energy efficient and not in fuel poverty including young people who are moving to live independently to understand not only things such as using energy saving light bulbs, but provide them with advice about draught proofing, insulation, beating the cold by wearing energy efficient clothing and keeping healthy in cold weather and to check with their personal assistants/support workers about their benefits to make sure that they know where to get help from should they struggle with energy bills.
