Community Assist participant family and tradespeople

Kildonan Uniting Care and Moreland Energy Foundation

Kildonan Uniting Care, Moreland Energy Foundation and its partners developed the Concession Assist program.

Concession Assist has provided participants with free practical support to better manage their energy use and increase the comfort of their home and tested an approach to delivering energy efficiency that could be replicated in other regions across Australia.

Since its inception the program has delivered over 1000 free energy and water retrofits to low income renters and home owners in the municipality of Moreland and the suburbs of Coolaroo, Meadow Heights and Campbellfield. It has reached culturally and linguistically diverse, low income renters and frail elderly and disadvantaged sub sectors of the community.
