Know your energy efficiency options, grants and loans 2

Whether you are just thinking about a few low cost options for saving energy or wanting to find out about current loans and grants for energy efficiency work, this is the event for you.

For example, would you be interested in Solid Wall Insulation if there was a government scheme to reduce the cost?
If your home is not suitable for Cavity Wall Insulation, there is a new scheme to subsidise the cost of External Wall Insulation (EWI) and Internal Wall Insulation (IWI), which extends to a range of other energy saving improvements made at the same time. This subsidy, called ECO, can reduce the cost of the work by several thousand pounds and is not income-dependent – so it is worth knowing more about it!


There will be 10 minute talks on:
  • ·        Insulating solid wall homes – what is the ECO subsidy? Could it help me?
  • ·        Is the Green Deal a great deal? Or are there better alternatives?
  • ·        Energy Efficiency and a Healthy House – how to do both.
  • ·        Draught-busting and other low cost / DIY ways to save energy.

Then from 8-9pm there will be mini-surgeries, giving you the chance to put your questions to the speakers in small groups or individually.

If you would like to know more, why not come along to this information evening at Jesse Gray Primary School in West Bridgford, Nottingham on 28th November from 7-9pm?

Dementia: Our lives, our story: Working together for a better future


There’s a conference called ‘Dementia: Our lives, our story: Working together for a better future’ taking place at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on Monday 28th May – which is free to those with dementia and their carers.

The event is being hosted by the Leicester-based charity Trent Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) in partnership with Dementia UK and Innovations in Dementia. It’s been developed and will be led by people living with dementia and their carers. It will provide an opportunity to come together with professionals working in the field – whilst meeting other people who have been affected by dementia.

The event will include information stands and surgeries for people living with dementia and their carers so you can talk to advisers about issues such as day-to-day living with dementia and financial and legal advice.
