Since 2009 our Affordable Warmth Team have been busy in Argyll and Bute helping people combat fuel poverty. Our affordable warmth service provides advice, support and mentoring to people living in Argyll and Bute experiencing fuel poverty. As well as helping our target groups directly, we also provide training and mentoring to people who support them in their community, including health and social care professionals, carer groups and community groups, and volunteers.
Our Affordable Warmth work aims to reduce the number of households in Argyll & Bute and Lochaber who experience fuel poverty. We target our assistance to groups who are most vulnerable to fuel poverty, including the elderly, single parents, families with young children, young adults living alone and the disabled.
