Home Energy Scotland – helping families save energy, save money and keep warm and well
Funded by Scottish Government and managed by Energy Saving Trust, Home Energy Scotland is the free, impartial energy advice and information service that is an integral part of Scottish Government’s approach to tackling fuel poverty in Scotland.
Our service aims to help householders, irrespective of affluence or tenure, reduce their energy bills and make their homes warmer, not least as the link between cold, damp homes and health and wellbeing is well documented.
Free and impartial – we do not cold call
Whilst the service we provide is in part delivered by telephone, I would like to stress that Home Energy Scotland is not a call centre. Advisors provide free, impartial energy advice designed to help householders make informed decisions. Home Energy Scotland has no connection with any energy supplier, and does not cold call.
Support we offer includes information about funding and grants available for new boilers, insulation and heating systems to help make homes more efficient. Advisors can see if people are eligible for financial support, benefits and incentives, and advise on shopping around for cheaper energy deals.
We understand that keeping a home warm can be a struggle for many so we are keen to work with locally trusted parties to help build insight and break down barriers to encourage and enable more people to benefit from our service.
Attached are copies of the latest leaflets with the savings and helpful energy tips

Understanding Your Boiler
Would you like to… Shop around for best value? Stay in touch with friends and family? Learn something new? Have free access to PCs and Wi-Fi and use social media? Why not come along to one of our I.T. & ME sessions and discover what I.T. can do for you!
I.T. & ME drop in sessions take place in Stirling Council Libraries to help solve basic IT problems and learn new digital skills. It is completely free to take part and you don’t need to learn everything at once. You can take small steps and learn at your own pace in a relaxed atmosphere. Digital devices such as PCs, tablets and smart phones are changing the way people access information, keep in touch with one another and learn new things. Depending on your interests, hobbies and what you use your computer for, I.T. & ME can do something for you.
For your local I.T. & ME session please contact Bridge of Alan Library, sessions run on a Friday from 14:00 – 16:00
To find out more about IT & ME sessions with Stirling Council Libraries or to find out about becoming an I.T. & ME volunteer please contact: Heather Walsh, Digital Volunteer Coordinator, email email@example.com or tel: 01786 237542
