PEOPLE on benefits are being offered the chance to attend a workshop later this month on how to save energy.

Organised by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), the workshop will be delivered by Keith-based environmental and sustainable development charity REAP.

Whether people have been caught off guard by higher bills and payments, uncertain income or the loss of a job, this workshop aims to help DWP customers find a way forward and take the first step towards getting on top of things.

As part of the workshop, REAP will include free home energy saving advice including help with high bills, switching, advice about available grants and loans as well as support if customers are worried about contacting their energy company.

REAP's Community Energy Champion will offer Free and interactive energy saving advice as well as getting the best deal on energy bills

Also on the agenda will be saving energy in the home and how to use heating controls to both keep a house warm and save money

Places at the workshop are limited, so DWP customers interested in attending should speak to their work coach as soon as possible.
