During the Scottish LEADER 2016, a Cooperation Cafe session was held where participants generated and discussed ideas for potential LEADER cooperation projects.

Helen Houston, member of the Highland LEADER Sutherland Local Area Partnership, put forward an idea for a cooperation project looking to address fuel poverty.

The proposed project would involve:

  • Mapping

  • Gaps in service provision

  • Focus group – real challenges

  • Local animateurs

  • Reducing social exclusion

  • Giving a voice

  • Ability to see inequality of service and support with all partners
