The West Midlands Rural Community Action Network project is aimed at providing support and advice to individuals and communities’ in rural locations to reduce fuel poverty through a variety of measures, which will increase household income and/or reduce household expenditure. The primarily role will be to provide advice and disseminate information on measures that will reduce fuel poverty through energy efficiency. This will be done by employing Rural Energy Outreach Agents (REOAs) located in target communities. In addition, these REOAs will also look at offering support and advice in respect of a) increasing household income and b) reducing household outgoings. They will act as a local signposting service to other support agencies such as CAB, Benefits Agency and others.
