Tighean Innse Gall (TIG) supports households living in fuel poverty in rural and remote communities across the Western Isles, Scotland – an area in which an estimated 59% of households are affected. In 2018/2019, TIG will deliver the Gluasad Comhla (Moving Together) project, which draws on the principles and practices of social prescribing, working with health services and other local partners to deliver a joined up, holistic approach.
