We help individuals and organisations adapt to global energy and environmental challenges. Our Green Doctor programmes provide practical support to change thinking and improve energy management and efficiency in support of a more sustainable future.
It is a stark reality that energy challenges impact first and worst on those people and communities that have the least. Addressing these challenges requires doing things differently. It involves making choices. It involves change.
Though its Green Doctor programme, Groundwork Wales’ specialist teams of Green Doctors are working with those living in the most vulnerable homes in our society. Through home visits and assessments, the teams help residents understand the positive, practical steps that they can take to reduce fuel poverty and make their homes more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run. As part of the assessment, the teams work in partnership with ‘Community Switch’ and advise residents on the most cost-effective energy and water tariffs.
Our Green Doctors are also on call at community venues in the Bridgend area, raising awareness of energy management, reducing fuel bills and at the same time, reducing the carbon footprint.
