Dementia Training session

Age Scotland energy workshops

Energy Workshops

Our free energy workshops help older people to stay warm and save money, understand their fuel bills, learn about carbon monoxide safety in the home, be prepared for power cuts and find out about the practical and financial support available.

The benefits system is complicated; it can be difficult to work out what you are entitled to, and how to claim it. Our workshops cover the benefits that support older people, and give practical advice and information on making applications.
