Household Resilience Activity

The Household Resilience project will employ 1 graduate apprentice and support 27 wage based placements for employed trainees over three years.  These employed trainees will work directly with 10 locally based organisations who will provide supervision and support to address the key issues for our communities. 

The project activity is supported by anchor organisations, with experience in hosting employability placements and expertise in key issues for our communities.  They will support employed trainees to deliver support on: 

  • Fuel Poverty – with Advocates based locally to undertake outreach to support individuals and households facing challenges with increasing costs, to engage with partner organisations to access a range of measures to reduce fuel costs or increase household income.   
  • Climate Action – with project assistants being employed to support key priorities as identified in the Campbeltown Community Action Plan and cascaded across the partnership. 
  • Child and Family poverty – with Uniform Upcycling along with promotion, collection, laundry and redistribution of school uniforms for families facing challenges due to rising household costs. 
  • Food poverty – to extend the reach of the Bute Advice Centre to support the community  Food Forum across the area by adding welfare advice reach to those accessing foodbank services. 

Inspiralba support the graduate appreciate to coordinate the delivery within and across the 9 other partners. These local partner organisations  host and support Employment Training posts, adding capacity and building knowledge/expertise on the ground in communities. 

The local advocates will undertake outreach, signposting and supporting householders, providing a link between vulnerable households and support organisations to reduce poverty and improving wellbeing.   

The programme will provide support to develop the confidence and skills of employed trainees, equipping them to deliver effective engagement in their local community, with accredited training and access to specialist expertise alongside regular network /steering group meetings. 

The project will deliver local impact, assisting those most in need in our rural and island communities to access support to reduce poverty, whilst also contributing to net zero targets through energy efficiency and climate action activity.
