    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    FVA lunchtime learning sessions are aimed at raising the skills and capacities of local service providers interested in improving or enhancing their provision in Fife.

    Fuel Poverty is an increasingly relevant problem for those struggling to make ends meet in Fife, particularly since the electricity bill crisis earlier in the year. Despite electricity bills slowly coming down, many Fife residents are finding it tough to heat their homes in the winter months, and most electricity bills are still far higher than they were last year.

    At this session, Bruce McCall, Project Manager for Cosy Kingdom, and Mark McGibbon, Fuel Poverty Officer from Fife Council, will give participants a detailed overview of support available for those in fuel poverty in Fife, including:

    • What is fuel poverty: The causes, effects and who is at risk;
    • Rising energy prices, what it means and has meant, for those most at risk from fuel poverty;
    • How to identify the signs of fuel poverty in the people you work with;
    • How the energy advice service from Cosy Kingdom and other supports from Fife Council can help people in Fife who are experiencing fuel poverty.
