Switched On – Young People’s Energy Advice

Raising awareness and understanding on the importance of embracing energy efficiency for young people in Manchester.

Citizens Advice ‘Switched on’ Project is funded by the Energy Saving Trust’s Energy Redress scheme and will provide energy workshops and 1-2-1 sessions for young people (16-25 yr olds) in order to help them adopt sustainable living and energy efficiency, as well as the support to improve their quality of everyday life.

The Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from one of our Young People’s energy ambassadors and learn;

  • How to manage your energy account.
  • Switch energy suppliers.
  • Tips and tricks on how to be more energy efficient.

The one hour workshop will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A session with one of our young people’s energy ambassadors who lead the project.

From knowing the basics on how to set up an energy account and what you need to be energy efficient, how to switch suppliers for cheaper deals and the tip and tricks you can use to keep your home warm in winter – they’ll be there to answer any questions you may have.
