Working with new and future energy consumers

Our Energy Skills for Life project works with new and future energy consumers  - young people aged 13 – 25, approaching leaving school, or at an early stage of living independently. Our key target is:

  • Secondary school students at Key Stage 3 - a workshop showing pupils how to understand energy bills and prepare themselves for independent living.
  • Young adults in education or training living independently for the first time.
  • Young people living independently often have low incomes and therefore a lack of resilience. They also often have limited financial capability/literacy skills and as such struggle to understand the complex consumer energy market.  Our programme can help to tackle some of these issues by delivering;
  • Drop-in advice sessions with one of our expert advisors
  • 1:1 advice visits for young consumers living independently in private rented accommodation.

This project will provide skills for life for all participants by increasing their understanding of how to manage their energy consumption and costs.

Funded through the Energy  Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme
