Reducing Outgoings: Gas/ Electricity

Gas and electricity prices keep rising and now present a large chunk of the household budget but there are ways to minimise this expense.

You can help your tenants by checking to see:

  • If they qualify for the £150 Warm Home Discount.
  • That they are receiving their Winter Fuel Payment.
  • That they are receiving their Cold Weather Payment.
  • If changing supplier would reduce their bills.
  • If changing the way they pay could help.
  • If the are in gas and /or electricity arrears to see if their supplier has a charitable trust that could help.
  • If they qualify for the national concessionary fuel scheme if they or their late husband or wife working in the coal board use.
