National Energy Services (NES) is to launch an Energy Assessor Community Grant worth £2,500 which aims to support energy assessor and home inspector networking groups.

Applicants are being sought from all local or national voluntary groups in England and Wales who could use financial assistance with marketing, networking and welfare initiatives.

The winner is to be announced at the NES Annual Conference.

Brian Scannell, Managing Director of NES, said: “We know that it is an incredibly tough market for many energy assessors, particularly new entrants who may be self-employed for the first time in their lives. Professional networking, online discussion forums and local support groups are a vital lifeline to share knowledge and experiences, swap notes and get advice and moral support.”

The deadline for entries is Monday 13 October. The application form can be downloaded from the link below.
