SPIRIT Volunteering

Express your faith in action. Help your friends and neighbours reduce their energy bills.

 

 

SPIRIT is a new energy saving initiative in the London Borough of Barnet. The project offers free training in energy saving to members of faith communities. Following the free training, on-going support from an energy advisor will help residents to deliver advice to their friends and family via in-home visits or holding small energy group sessions.

These sessions can help households save energy, save money and have a warmer home, as well as contributing to action on climate change.

 

 

How will your community benefit?

Having a warmer, less draughty home and lower bills can give householders:
