Forces for Warmth (East Midlands Area)

Forces for Warmth is being established across the East Midlands and will begin by delivering training to staff at The Royal British Legion to enable them to identify and offer basic advice and guidance to people who may be in, or at risk of, living in fuel poverty and struggling to stay warm in their homes affordably. They will also be able to provide basic support and advice either over the phone or when visiting people in their homes. Staff will also be able to refer people to a designated advice service run by NEA, in order to receive tailored more in-depth energy advice and practical support.
Community engagement events will be an integral part of the project to target local areas and to raise awareness of the service being offered, and offer outreach advice and support. After the initial pilot project and evaluating the successes and learning points, the intention is to expand the project from the East Midlands to other areas within the UK.
