Village and Community Agents November update

Staying warm and well this winter

This year, more than ever, many people will be extremely concerned about the rise in fuel costs and the coming winter months. Please do get in touch if you are struggling with fuels costs – we want everyone to be warm and well this winter! Alternatively, you can contact the Centre for Sustainable Energy and their Home Energy team on 0800 082 2234. They are on hand to deal with fuel debt, help find cheaper fuel, aid in switching suppliers and much more. Watch this recent Talking Café for fantastic tips and advice for saving money on your fuel bills and keeping a warm home. 

Are you are over 60, or rely on electricity for medical or mobility reasons or have a hearing or visual impairment or a long-term health condition? Sign up for the priority services register. There is advice on the website for registering with your other utilities too such as water and gas.
