Age Scotland and SGN team up to offer new energy support for older people
The charity is urging older people across Scotland to sign up for these new workshops

The charity's new online home energy workshops will help raise awareness of the support and options available to older people, with the addition of a new energy advisory service on their national helpline to talk through their circumstances and ensure they are claiming everything they are entitled to.

This new service is being funded by gas network company SGN through a new partnership aimed at helping more older and vulnerable people across Scotland access the help that is available to them.

Age Scotland’s Chief Executive Brian Sloan said: “It’s clear that many older people would benefit from tailored advice on energy matters, as they may not be aware of the energy schemes in place to offer support, or may be reluctant to claim financial assistance despite being entitled to it.”

For more information on the scheme and to sign up for an energy advice workshop, please visit the website: www.age.scot/energyworkshops.
