With a priority focus on families with young children and young people, the project will develop a high profile, sustainable programme of activities in Swindon to take action, which results in a significant and measurable reduction in fuel poverty and carbon emissions across the borough. The grant will fund the recruitment and training of a full time Swindon Energy Officer who will promote energy efficiency advice via a free phone advice line, establish an energy advice network for families with young children and young people, establish energy advice surgeries and displays, deliver presentations to community groups, run events, respond to requests for home visits and provide a signposting service for available grants. The project will work in partnership with voluntary and statutory organisations to improve the energy efficiency of homes and reduce the proportion of household income spent on fuel in the Swindon area.
