West Northumberland CAB are requesting funding over 2 years to continue with a very successful 2 year pilot project, funded by the Trust in December 2009. The existing caseworker will deal exclusively with fuel poverty via home visits and CAB outlets and have cases referred from the debt workers for benefit checks to ensure income maximisation, best tariff and fuel debts are managed. They will also check the client’s house and facilitate energy conservation via Warm Zone or Warm Front. Where appropriate grant applications will be submitted for energy efficient white goods.
