Get involved in home retrofit and learn how to use a thermal camera!

We’ve teamed up with community groups in four areas  – Ambleside; Keswick; Levens and Arnside and Greysouthen, Melbreak, Lorton, Eaglesfield, Bridgefoot and Little Clifton – for a new project all about retrofitting and refurbishing homes to save energy and be more comfortable.

We’re recruiting volunteers in each of these area to help drive the project. No experience necessary! We’re looking for people to help plan and publicise events, and a group of volunteers to carry out free thermal imaging surveys – full training provided. Our team are also interested to hear from home owners who are carrying out significant low energy retrofit work to their homes, or have already done so – it’s great to have case studies, or for home owners who are considering their own retrofit to be able to talk to others about it.

Email [email protected] if you are interested in helping with any of these activities. CAfS are really keen to welcome some new people to get involved in the project, so if you are interested or have questions before you decide, do get in touch! Tell your friends if you know someone who might be keen – this is for anyone in these locations, whether you are already a member of these community groups or not.

Volunteer now!

This project is funded through the

Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme.
