The Welcoming Home Energy Efficiency Project

The Welcoming Association

The Welcoming Home Energy Efficiency Project aims to tackle and prevent fuel poverty and associated risks by supporting New Scots (refugees, asylum seekers and migrants) in Edinburgh to learn about the local energy and billing system, implementing home energy efficiency measures and behaviours to reduce their energy consumption. Through home energy visits and one-to-one energy advice, project participants will be able to control their energy consumption, access financial support, improve their home energy efficiency, and apply for fuel debt assistance when required. This intervention will benefit all New Scots living in Edinburgh, as well as support local agencies and service providers to reach the most excluded and marginalised members of the community, such as newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers.
