Grant's story

Posted on 03 November 2013

"I help people to save money on their fuel bills and think about better ways of using energy.  

"The project I'm working on will help over 8,000 people in rural communities in the Swansea area with advice on energy efficiency and how to beat fuel poverty.

"I support residents to change their tariffs or use alternative forms of energy.  I also carry out 'house audits' to identify ways people can make their homes more efficient through insulation or other means.

"One local resident was interested in solar panels.  I was able to guide her through the process and find a local supplier that she knew and trusted to carry out the work.  

"We also work with schools to raise awareness of renewable energy among young people and I am training local volunteers to carry on the good work in their communities.  

"I have very strong beliefs about the importance of helping communities to develop skills and knowledge that they can carry forward even after our projects have ended.  

"Groundwork has a strong local reputation so people trust us to give sound advice and a good service.

"It's all about building a legacy."
