Could you help your community become more energy aware?

CSE project seeks volunteer leaders in Bristol

28 June 2011

Could you help your community become more energy-aware? Lead draught-busting events, deliver energy-saving presentations and show people how to read their gas and electricity meters? Then read on...

A new CSE initiative will tap into the network of already well-established community groups across Bristol to find volunteers willing to inspire action on household energy issues.

Our new Bristol Volunteers Get Energy project aims to find leaders from various groups who are able to communicate with and educate their peers and communities about household energy through a range of energy-saving activities.

The volunteers will be supported in their activities by a small team offering training, work-shadowing, information, materials and equipment, expert input and a dedicated volunteer buddy.

Verity Saunders is leading the drive to recruit volunteers and explained what sort of people we’re looking for. “You don’t need to have had huge amount of experience or knowledge of working on energy saving issues to be a volunteer,” she said. “If you’re already involved in any capacity with a community group in Bristol, and would like to help your members save money on their household energy bills, then we’d like to hear from you.”

If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you. Email us at
