Citizens Advice Gateshead announces new partnership with Big Energy Saving Network
To increase our ability to deliver crucial advice in this area, we are joining the Big Energy Saving Network so that we can reach out to local residents who would otherwise not have sought energy advice, providing awareness-raising sessions and assisted self-help to support them to make positive changes.
We have also secured funding to deliver detailed energy advice to 120 consumers who are identified as being at risk of fuel poverty. We will also be delivering training to frontline workers throughout the region who work closely with consumers who are in fuel poverty or at risk of fuel poverty
Working through our community hubs and with other local partners such as Age UK we will be able to make sure that people are staying warm this winter.
