Energy Outreach Project

1st September 2023 - 31st March 2024

supporting devon's communities through the challenges of the energy crisis and increasing cost of living 

Devon Communities Together is here to provide help and support to people via our fully trained Energy Champions, as part of the Energy Outreach Project. 

how can we help?

1. community energy presentations

Nowadays, we are all worried about our energy bills. We can come to your Village Hall or other community space and provide a tailored presentation about the ways in which you could save energy and access additional support. 

Who are the presentations for?

Are you on a village hall committee or involved in a similar organisation? You may wish to arrange a presentation as a service to your community. It could make a difference to people's wellbeing throughout this period.

Alternatively you could encourage some of your users/contacts to invite us along to one of their events. We can attend coffee mornings, lunch clubs, village markets, as well as bespoke events. We are happy to undertake repeat visits to locations and organisations we have helped in the past.

Depending on your community's needs, we can cover topics including:

  • The energy market and energy costs
  • Understanding fuel poverty
  • Government support for households
  • Industry support for households
  • Warm Homes Discount eligibility
  • Home energy saving
  • Switching energy suppliers
  • Priority Services Register
  • Getting further advice
  • Investment in home energy saving
  • The pros and cons of Smart Meters
  • Devon Oil Collective
  • Carbon Zero – new energy sources
  • Obtaining further help with energy affordability

Our presentations will take around 40 minutes and there will be time for questions and the opportunity to request individual support. To book a presentation, email,, or call 07984 001542 / 01392 248919.

2. 1-2-1 support

We are also available to work with individuals or households to look at specific ways you can mitigate against the impact of energy costs and explore ways in which you could access additional financial and wellbeing support. 

For a confidential chat, please email, or call 07984 001542 / 01392 248919.

3. Warm this Winter pack giveaway

We are very lucky to have received a grant of £7367 from the National Grid Community Fund to give away FREE Winter Warm packs, filled with warm accessories; blankets, socks, gloves, hat, scarf and a travel mug, perfect for the cold season. All of this is available to people who attend a 10 minute personal advice session from either of our Energy Champions at a 1-2-1 session, community presentation or meet and greet.
