You’ll also help with delivering our wider energy efficiency activities, including the national LEAP (Local Energy Advice Partnership) programme.
You’ll be at the heart of our initiatives that help people to use less energy at home. You’ll visit vulnerable households across Cumbria to offer advice on ways to save money and energy, and you’ll install energy-saving measures, such as draughtproofing equipment.
You’ll help us to reach these households by building networks with partner organisations across the county. You’ll support even more people by running energy advice events for people at risk of fuel poverty.
