Trust to launch new H-eat Well project in Highlands

Students in the Highlands are to be offered advice on how to cook healthy food while keeping energy costs down.

Social enterprises the Calman Trust and Changeworks have jointly launched the new initiative called H-eat Well.

Backed by £215,670 of lottery funding, the project is seeking volunteers to give advice aimed at tackling food and fuel poverty.

H-eat Well classes will be held in Golspie, Invergordon, Dingwall, Fort William, Aviemore and Portree.

The Calman Trust said the new project followed the success of its Cook Well scheme in Inverness and Invergordon.

The social enterprise provides support and training to about 400 young people who want to develop skills for living and working.
