The Footprint Trust promotes sustainable living linked to social action. The Isle of Wight has some of the most inadequately insulated homes in the country. Those in work have some of the lowest pay in England and many of the jobs are seasonal. Isle of Wight wards feature in the indices of poverty. The Trust will train parents so that they can assist others in a similar position. Guidance will be given on how to save energy and signposting to allowances and other help available. Each home and family will have tailored guidance depending on the issues discovered. Thus the skills learnt can be shared with others. Those trained can then signpost and give some guidance to their peers.
