Citizens Advice St. Helens energy advice project has assisted people who are struggling to pay their energy bills, since 2011.
Funded by the British Gas Energy Trust, the service is open to customers of all energy suppliers, and we help people apply to the following energy trusts and funds which provide free grants to pay gas and electricity debts.
In addition to providing debt advice, we can provide advice on doing price-comparisons to switch to a cheaper tariff/energy supplier, and advice on the funding available to install energy-efficient home improvements such as boilers and insulation.
We also have access to the British Gas Energy Trust Emergency Utility Credit Scheme, which issues energy vouchers to British Gas customers on pay-as-you go meters, who have health and financial problems.
