Lots of questions are being asked by the conference delegates via the Sli.do app, many of which were answered by the Chair and guest speakers. These include;
- How will the actions from last years LSP conference around housing help people in fuel poverty in the targeted areas?
- How do get a community friends group in every community?
- How can we link up initiatives like Helping Hands in Sidley with others?
- How do you support a client who is clearly being exploited but is unwilling or unable to recognise it in themselves?
- What support can be given to renewable technology for rural areas where electric heating is often the only option other than oil?
- If Warm Homes fund is only available in urban areas how do we help those in rural areas?
- The warm homes fund sounds great but seems to rely on gas. What will happen when gas boilers are phased out?
- How do we raise concern that someone is being exploited without being scared that we are telling tales or put our own safety in danger?
- How do we help those living in rural areas with fuel poverty
- Is food poverty increasing in Rother?
- Where do older people who often don’t ask for help get help?
- How do we get to help isolated rural people who are struggling?
- What can we offer people unable to afford food other than the food bank? Especially in rural areas
- The issue is people just don’t have enough money to pay their bills
- Love the services for Optivo residents. What is available for private rented sector residents?
- In rural areas many people don’t have gas but have oil which is expensive. Is there support for electricity central heating ?
- Didn’t know about warm Home Check service. Thank you for telling us
- Calls to Sussex Police with concerns about exploitation can be anonymous should you wish and the information will still be actioned
