The heat is on for colleagues from Riverside, as they
take up a training course to help tenants cope with rising fuel
costs and do their bit for the environment.
The course is for colleagues who work directly
with tenants. It lifts the lid on why green policies are
relevant for tenants and housing associations, a common sense
approach to understanding green technology jargon, as well as the
financial benefits of good energy strategies.
Emily Hoyle, Riverside’s strategic affordable
warmth officer, said: “Housing association employees who work
with tenants on a day to day basis are in an ideal position to
advise on the best ways to be fuel efficient and save money.
Our staff need to be clued up on the latest affordable warmth
options and understand the different challenges tenants face,
depending on the age and condition of their homes and their family
The training course, held at Riverside’s
Merseyside office, is for employees from across the country and
forms part of its mission to tackle rising fuel costs and work
towards a greener future.
