Information update for families struggling to pay for their gas, electricity and water bills

Written by our Energy Adviser and Project Co-ordinator Helen Dean.

We all know how hard it is for low-income families at the moment with winter approaching, dealing with benefit cuts, the rise in food and fuel prices, and gas and electricity costs having gone up from October this year.

If you would like a short training session for your team on discounts that families can claim for their electricity and water, and details of the telephone advice Helen can give to families to reduce their utility bills, please contact Helen at helen.dean@ccberks.org.uk, or call 0773 8887612. This update has been given to Social Services teams in West Berkshire, and has been very well received.
