Carer and community training

Free training for frontline workers and community groups

At least one in 10 households in Greenwich or Lewisham can’t afford to keep their homes warm in winter.  Many have to choose between heating and eating.

Being cold has the most serious effect on:

  • over 60s
  • the under-5s
  • pregnant women
  • people with disabilities or long-term health conditions
  • on a low income.

It’s a sad fact that people who can least afford it, often pay more for their energy.

If you run a community group or you provide services and support for people who are likely to struggle to keep their homes warm, we would love to help you get the right kinds of information to your clients or your community.

We provide:

  • Training for community groups: we can provide a workshop for your clients or service users or a one-to-one advice desk for your event. To request a workshop please email
  • Empowering Elders: this project provides champion training for 5 older people organisations in Lewisham and home visits to help their members, clients, and users to save energy and money

·SELCE is usually funded to run training or workshops from October to the end of March and can provide this training for FREE. Outside the winter months we can provide a workshop or training for a nominal fee.
