Established in 2000, Caudwell Children is a national charity which works to transform the lives of disabled children and their families, enabling them to challenge the barriers they face throughout childhood by providing practical and emotional support.
The charity is going through an exciting period of growth having recently opened a new state-of-the-art facility for multi-disciplinary therapy programmes for childhood disability and research of neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism, within the grounds of Keele University.
The energy redress scheme is a funded project to support parents/carers of disabled children – to identify, engage and support families to address energy efficiency and affordability, in another important step to transforming the lives of disabled children.
The duties of the volunteer role are as follows;
• Deliver essential services and support families ensuring homes are warm and efficiently heated
• Conduct personalised home surveys and provide a combination of information and support to understand energy bills, energy improvements and reduce energy costs
• Understand specific needs of families with disabled children
