Somerset Energy Advice volunteer

Are you looking for a rewarding volunteering role that involves talking to people, getting out and about in the community and giving practical energy saving advice?

With energy and cost-of-living prices still sky-high, more people than ever are suffering in freezing homes this winter.

Safe and Warm Somerset is a free advice service dedicated to helping people in Somerset stay warm and healthy in their homes. We’re looking for volunteers to join our team.

We’ll give you full training and lots of opportunities to connect with other volunteers.

You don’t need any existing experience giving energy advice. We’ll give you comprehensive training and you’ll be supported to set up your stall, working alongside one of our experienced caseworkers to begin with. As you feel more confident you will take over running of the stall yourself.

We’re looking for at least one volunteer to run a monthly stall in each of the following locations: Bridgewater, Taunton, Wellington, Burnham on Sea, Highbridge, Chard, Minehead, Dulverton, Yeovil and Wincanton. If you’re interested in doing more than one stall, please let us know.

If you’re interested or want to find out more, please email volunteers@cse.org.uk with your name, location and phone number. We’ll give you a call to have a chat in more detail about the role and to find out about you.


About Safe and Warm Somerset

Safe and Warm Somerset is a project funded by Somerset Council and the Somerset Community Foundation and run by the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE). The project aims to help people stay warm and healthy in their homes, lower their fuel bills and reduce their impact on the environment. Individuals who are struggling with their energy bills may find it hard to access our online or telephone advice services, so in-person advice is vital to the work we do.
