All UK energy companies have committed to supporting customers that are facing financial difficulty. The support available varies depending on who you get your gas and electricity from, so you should get in touch with them to find out more.
We have been forging new partnerships with local energy charities across the country, to increase access to energy support and advice for our customers. One of them is Connect for Help, an energy advice organisation targeted towards households that are already in, or at risk of, fuel poverty.
They’ve been helping our customers reduce their energy bills to ensure that they can afford to keep warm throughout the winter. If you’d like free confidential advice from Connect for Help, you can contact them via their website, email or by calling 0800 029 4548.
