Help for people struggling with energy bills
We are pleased to inform you about a new pan-county service (covering Essex, Southend and Thurrock) which the Citizens Advice Essex consortium has recently launched. Funded by UK Power Networks and provided by the Citizens Advice Essex consortium, the service provides practical advice and support for those experiencing fuel poverty. If you are on a low income, are in debt with your energy provider, or use a pre-payment meter, you may be in fuel poverty and could benefit from this service.

You may have high heating costs as a result of a health condition, poor insulation, or worried about your utility provider and escalating costs to heat and light your home. You may be on a low income.
All of these things can mean that people cut back on their heating use, or get into serious arrears with their supplier or cut back in other areas – such as food or essentials. None of these consequences are good for your physical, financial, or emotional wellbeing.
Essex Warm Homes is here to help.
Staffed by experienced, professional advisers, based in local Citizens Advice offices around Essex, our service is resourced by the Warm Homes Fund.Apply online for the Warm Homes Fund Or call on 0300 3033 789
