Subject: Groundwork South, Covid 19 update help and offer of FREE TRAINING

During the current Covid 19 outbreak isolation:

  • How will your clients cope in a power-cut?
  • Or cope with higher fuel bills?
Groundwork South can offer your staff FREE bespoke online training, using Zoom, MS teams etc to provide answers to these questions. Once trained your staff will be able to support your clients both now and in the future to keep well and safe at home and save money on fuel bills.

This is a valuable time to train staff that are not currently able to deliver their usual frontline tasks, and make available to them ways of helping their clients remotely.

The training includes signing clients up to the Priority Service Register and giving switching energy provider advice etc. which are vital right now, as people are having to spend more time at home in self isolation, using more energy than usual, and may be left stranded and unable to access services if the power goes down.

If you are interested please respond Yes to this email and we will contact you shortly to arrange training.

Kind regards
