Radiate Project Wins Prestigious Award
Charter Housing’s Radiate project has won the Environmental Award at the WCVA Third Sector Awards Cymru. Radiate, delivered by Charter’s Youth Team supports young people to learn about energy efficiency and gain work experience by fitting energy efficiency measures into tenants homes.
Charter Housing Youth Team and Bron Afon’s Radiate project has seen young unemployed people in Monmouthshire, Torfaen and Caerphilly improve their job prospects while helping older people afford to stay warm in their homes. The young people have been trained to fit energy saving measures and already done so in more than I00 homes. Between now and June 2014, the Radiate trainees will fit over 200 homes with the energy efficiency measures, giving an average annual saving of £186 per household.
