Suzanne Barningham

Energyworks Manager, Groundwork

Suzanne Barningham joined Groundwork in 2013 and leads the Energyworks Programme and Team which provides a wide range of tailor-made services across GM where the focus is on customer need and not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. Suzanne has developed the programme from the small ‘Get me Toasty’ team that began in Rochdale to a service which has grown in success, expanding across the whole of Greater Manchester, building networks and forging strong partnerships along the way. Our Green Doctors are helping more and more residents make their homes warmer, more energy efficient and healthier places to live. Suzanne works with landlords, local authorities, health partners and residents to tackle the problem of fuel poverty in our local communities. Having a background in welfare to work programmes, Suzanne’s initial role at Groundwork was as an Employment Adviser with our Work Programme teams in both Bury and Rochdale. Having worked with customers with multiple and complex needs for over 2 years, before taking on the role of Homeless Persons Employment Adviser, she was well equipped to develop the Energyworks Team to provide information, advice and guidance to local residents as she truly understands the different push and pull factors in vulnerable communities. Suzanne’s aspiration is to change the world in GM to reduce the number of households year on year who are living in fuel poverty.
