Following on from a successful door to door intervention in another part of Belfast NEA NI and the Public Health Agency (PHA) approached the Mount Vernon Community Development Forum (MVCDF) to discuss the possibility of carrying out a local door to door intervention in the area to bring energy efficiency improvements to the residents of Mount Vernon.


MVCDF agreed that the project would bring great benefits to the area and with an active team of volunteers able to conduct door to door questionnaires, the area was ideal. Once agreement was established a range of partners were engaged. Belfast City Council (BCC) and North Belfast AdvicePartnership (NBAP) came on board adding value to the intervention through additional services such as benefit entitlement checks and money advice to those who needed this.
