We’ve teamed up with NEA to help us run some Free Trianing sessions on 15th & 16th August, specifically designed for frontline workers. The Understanding Fuel Poverty and Health course is aimed at those wanting to learn more about fuel poverty, its causes and links with physical and mental wellbeing. The course will enable delegates to identify those likely to be at risk from fuel poverty and signpost to assistance. To book your place either contact us or the NEA coordinator as listed on the event PDF.
If you can’t make it to one of these dates, do let us know as we can offer bespoke training sessions for you and your teams at a time and place convenient to you.
