Fuel poverty is becoming a more pressing issue across the country through a mixture of rising energy costs, low income, and a lack of energy efficiency in homes.
Sometimes it can be difficult to identify when someone is struggling with fuel poverty and how to support them.
At this session, Laura Marshall, Housing Professional – fuel Poverty Team from Fife Council and Bruce McCall, Service Delivery Manager for Cosy Kingdom, will give participants a detailed overview of fuel poverty in Fife, including:
What fuel poverty is and how it has started to affect a wider range of people;
The current context: fuel poverty in Fife, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic and rising energy prices;
How to identify those in need;
How Cosy Kingdom’s energy advice service supports people in Fife who are experiencing fuel poverty;
How Fife Council can also help those struggling with fuel poverty;
How to signpost clients to resources that can help them.
