Worried about paying your fuel bills?

Do you restrict your use of power because you are worried about the bills?

Getting into arrears with your energy supplier or being forced to cut back your spending on food or other essentials can be bad for your physical, financial and emotional wellbeing.

Warm Homes Essex is a new service set up by Citizens Advice to provide practical advice and support to people who are finding it hard to heat their homes or would like to make their homes more energy efficient to reduce their bills.

Our experienced, professional advisers can help in a number of different ways:

Making sure you are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to

Helping you with fuel debt if you have already fallen to arrears (in some cases we can apply to trusts and foundations to help pay these off – giving you a fresh start)

Energy saving around the home

Switching suppliers – working out which energy tariff is the best one for you

Helping you to join an oil club

Access to grants for energy saving improvements – we can help you find the best scheme and help you apply

Access to emergency fuel payments
