The Big IDEA Project - Income, Debt, Energy, Advice (text plus lightbulb image)

Working in partnership with Glen Housing AssociationOre Valley Housing Association and Greener Kirkcaldy, we are now able to offer an Income Maximisation and Energy Advice Service.

The Big IDEA (Income, Debt, Energy Advice) project is able to assist with:

  • Budgeting
  • Benefit claims and appeals including navigating from legacy benefits to Universal Credit
  • Grant applications – i.e. for school clothing etc.
  • Energy advice

In-depth advice and one-to-one support can be provided through telephone advice, virtual appointments, home visits and workshops.

In addition, a programme of outreach work, events and training will be delivered to reach those households who will most benefit from the project. These sessions will cover basic household money management and information about the sources of advice and support available.

Local charity, Greener Kirkcaldy’s Cosy Kingdom Energy Advisors will offer advice tailored to each household’s needs, helping them to stay warm and get energy bills under control and providing a single point of contact for referrals.

The Big IDEA project will be running from 2023-2026.
