Energage …… Become a Community Energy Champion!

This new community project in Milton Keynes is looking for individuals interested in energy related issues, with focus on community-owned energy.

The project will create a network of Community Energy Champions, who will be provided with free interactive training to equip them with the skills needed to go out to their communities and assist them with energy related issues.

During February – March 2017 volunteers will participate in 5 co-designed workshops:

  • Basic concept of climate change and reducing carbon footprint
  • Community engagement techniques and how to use social media
  • How to use CAPE data to help communities
  • Practical demonstrations of skills
  • Sharing experiences and evaluation

This is a great opportunity to:

  • Learn about community energy
  • Be the first to explore CAPE, the new interactive energy tool for Milton Keynes
  • Engage with your local community
  • Unique opportunity to collaborate with researchers at The Open University

Sign up today – contact Anna, Project Co-ordinator at or call 01908 661623.

Victim Support is the independent national charity that helps people cope with crime.  Trained Victim Support Community Volunteers contact people after a crime to offer free, confidential support and information.  Volunteers with excellent listening skills, a good level of the English language and the ability to empathize are needed to offer advice and emotional support to victims of crime in the Milton Keynes area.  Next core training session dates are 15th/16th and 22nd/23rd February 2017. All volunteers will receive continued support and supervision. Ideally volunteers will be able to commit to 3 hours a week for at least 1 year during the daytime or evenings.

Willen Hospice  are always looking for Complementary Therapists to join their out-patient teams at the Hospice.  Days and hours can be flexible according to the volunteer’s availability.

If you are fully qualified in 1 or more therapies and have a minimum of 2 years practical experience, they would love to hear from you.

You will need to be a caring individual who can work independently and as part of a professional team performing holistic therapies on their patients, carers and staff in their Well Being Centre.
