You will be responsible for your own casework and will help us deliver the project targets by achieving positive outcomes for the clients you support:
- Raise awareness of fuel poverty locally, and enable others to support people in their community or refer them for in-depth support.
- Identify how homes can be made more affordable to heat, and give advice on general energy efficiency.
- Identify grants that are available to improve people’s homes and help them apply for them.
- Improve clients’ financial skills leading to reduced financial hardship and help identify benefits they may be entitled to.
You will act as a project navigator, carrying out home visits (either virtually or in-person when it is safe to do so in light of the coronavirus pandemic) and casework, delivering talks to client groups and facilitating and joining up professional support for the households in need. You will work with the RUH discharge service, giving face to face advice to patients as well as training hospital staff on the issues of fuel poverty and how you can help their patients. You will be supported by a small group of local volunteers and will be expected to support them in return.
