Free training in Climate Just tool
If you support people as part of your work, a tool called Climate Just could be very useful and you can learn about it at a free workshop.
This online tool can help you identify people who are most socially vulnerable to fuel poverty, extreme weather and flooding. You can explore where they are, why they are vulnerable, and what can be done to help.
It’s particularly useful if you work for a local authority, housing association, NHS, health and social care providers, fire and rescue services, and the voluntary sector.
Organisations have been using it when developing service plans, emergency plans, needs assessments and local development plans. It can also be helpful for guiding building works and community engagement.
The Climate Just tool is based on extensive research from the University of Manchester and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. It’s online and free to use by all at www.climatejust.org.uk.
The free training, run by CLASP, will show you how Climate Just could help you in your own work and how to use the tool. You’ll also learn more about the research behind it.
The workshop is on Wednesday 7 February from 9.30am to 12.30pm at Lakes College, Workington. If it is oversubscribed, those working in the public sector, social or third sector will have priority.
