Home Energy Scotland Support

Please find below some information about how Home Energy Scotland can help reduce your energy bills and make your home warmer:

Home Energy Scotland – helping families save energy, save money and keep warm and well

Funded by Scottish Government and managed by Energy Saving Trust, Home Energy Scotland is the free, impartial energy advice and information service that is an integral part of Scottish Government’s approach to tackling fuel poverty in Scotland.

Our service aims to help householders, irrespective of affluence or tenure, reduce their energy bills and make their homes warmer, not least as the link between cold, damp homes and health and wellbeing is well documented.

Free and impartial – we do not cold call

Whilst the service we provide is in part delivered by telephone, I would like to stress that Home Energy Scotland is not a call centre. Advisors provide free, impartial energy advice designed to help householders make informed decisions. Home Energy Scotland has no connection with any energy supplier, and does not cold call.

Support we offer includes information about funding and grants available for new boilers, insulation and heating systems to help make homes more efficient. Advisors can see if people are eligible for financial support, benefits and incentives, and advise on shopping around for cheaper energy deals.

Muckhart Nature Trail Project

You may be aware that Peter, and a team of community volunteers, are currently working to support the Muckhart Community Plan objective to improve the attractiveness of Muckhart in preparation for an entry into the “Beautiful Scotland” competition… and they need your help !!

To fund the proposed Muckhart Nature Trail project, which will engage our school children and improve the biodiversity, natural and wildlife habitats along the path from Muckhart to the primary school, we need to gain as many votes as we can for this project via the Calor Rural Community Fund website.

All you need to do is click on the following link which will take you to the Calor Rural Community Fund web page. Then type Muckhart in the Search Box and click Go. Scroll down a bit and click View project and vote (you’ll need to register your email address before voting).

And please excuse the reference to ‘Stirlingshire’ – Clackmannanshire doesn’t exist on the Calor list !!

Every vote counts, so, once you’ve voted, please share this with your family, friends, neighbours, organisations and groups, work colleagues, indeed, anyone you know !!

Many thanks, indeed, in advance, for your support.

Business Support Survey

Clackmannanshire and Stirling’s Employer Engagement Forum have launched a survey to help identify support needs and skill gaps for local businesses operating in the Stirling and Clackmannanshire area. This will help direct people to the support they need, and identify where the support needs are, so that support organisations can better meet those needs.

The survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete and is appropriate for all sizes of business, including sole traders.

The following link will take you to the survey:
