Having Difficulty Paying Your Energy Bills?
We recommend you contact your energy supplier and discuss your situation. It is often the case that energy suppliers have a emergency support package that could be used to reduce part of your outstanding bill. If not it is recommended to agree a sensible payment plan that allows you to pay your bills at a rate that allows you to balance other household expenses.
Again our Financial Inclusion Team are there to help you understand your options and can provide impartial advice that suits your situation.
