Digital Energy Advice in Argyll and Bute (360G-SCVO-a110N00000TN3OuQAL)

Our project would like to introduce digital skills to people at home to help address their energy issues and alleviate fuel poverty. We think by introducing the benefits of digital skills through our energy advice to those with little or no digital knowledge or experience will help drive uptake to learn futher. We know our clients are more engaged with referrals made to third parties if the referral is made through trusted intermediaries, like ourselves. By demonstrating how the use of digital skills can help lower energy costs and save money we hope that our clients are more inclined to further develop their digital skills. We recognise fuel poverty isn’t a stand alone issue and many people facing fuel poverty may have other issues that require help and assistance. We regularly make referrals to Home Energy Scotland for energy efficiency funding measures, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service for fire safety checks and foodbanks. We believe a holistic approach is vital to ensure we help people improve their lives and leave a legacy. Digital skills fits perfectly with this ethos and we recognise there are many people, especially the elderly and vulnerable living in Argyll and Bute that are behind with the evolving world of technology. We believe introducing digital skills to energy advice will not only help improve their energy behaviours but also open a door to take their digital skills learning further.
