Food Insecurity and Fuel Poverty Action Group

The action group has been created as a subgroup from the Caithness Resilience Group, It was formed from stakeholder groups and organisations, in response to the problems faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fully inclusive, spanning from HIE representatives to grassroots community groups. From this group, we have created separate sub action groups.  

The action groups have been created to make sure that all stakeholders groups and community groups are working together on the current challenges being presented. 

The Food Insecurity and Fuel Poverty Action Group currently consist of:
Caithness Voluntary Group, Home Energy Scotland, Aspiring and Collaborative Communities project, Caithness CAB, Caithness Community Connections, Caithness foodbank, Community Council Members, Thurso Community Development Trust, Wick Youth Club, Highland Council Members, NHS Staff, Pentland Housing Association and Highland Council Housing Support.

The group meet every two weeks via Microsoft Teams and update one another on current issues. The groups are there to support each other and share information that will benefit the Caithness community.
