Making the transition from home to independent living is a challenge to even the most confident youngster. National Energy Action has produced a CD-sized pack of three booklets full of helpful, unpatronising advice. Your Money covers budgets, rent agreements, TV licences, council tax and similar topics. Your Fuel deals with gas and electricity metering, saving on hot water and lighting, and practical energy efficiency. Your Safety focuses on issues suchas ventilation, faulty wiring and appliances. The emphasis is on making responsible choices. The pack provides both guidance for young people and reassurance for their apprehensive parents. The pack, called Your Move, is obtainable from National Energy Action, St Andrew's House, 90-92 Pilgrim St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6SG Tel: 0191 261 5677 Fax: 0191 261 6496. Website:
