Advice Nottingham, a partnership of all local advice agencies, are currently running a two and a half year project funded by the British Gas Energy Trust. The overall aim of the project is; to provide advice and assistance to people to enable them to manage their debts and budgets going forward, maximise their incomes and ability to pay their bills, ensure people to have warm homes through improving energy efficiency and improving their health and wellbeing. We currently have four workers on the project. These workers are experienced debt and welfare rights advisors who have received training in energy efficiency advice and specialised fuel debt advice. The Nottingham Project is run by Advice Nottingham with advisors based at:-
St Anns Advice Centre

The focus of the project is the Greater Nottingham Area, but we will take referrals from people living in Nottinghamshire.
