Event description

Description

The Scottish Government has launched a public consultation on its draft Fuel Poverty Strategy and wants to hear your views. If you're part of a local community group or third sector organisation in the Scottish Borders or surrounding areas, and work with people in fuel poverty, this one-off workshop is for you.

The workshop will bring together community groups and third sector organisations to discuss and create responses to the draft strategy. The informative, interactive and fun session will be facilitated by Home Energy Scotland and will explain how your community can influence the fuel poverty policy.

You will take the lead, working in groups to explore specific questions, before reconvening at the end to summarise and discuss the next stages.

During the event, you will:

  • learn how to create effective, individual responses to the consultation

  • find out more about the fuel poverty strategy and the policy context

  • take part in an interactive session where we'll discuss the views of community groups.
