More information about the presentations…
This winter, Citizens Advice Telford and The Wrekin is working on a project focusing on energy, including giving presentations to groups of customers with the view to reducing their gas and electricity bills.
The topics covered in this presentation include:
- switching energy providers/tariffs,
- what happens if your supplier fails,
- smart meters,
- the energy cap,
- what help is available to customers, including Warm Home Discount, Priority Services Register,
- ECO scheme and any other energy related issues.
You will be able to ask questions and if you feel that you require face-to-face advice, Citizens Advice will be accepting referrals after the presentation.
Age UK has secured some funding for one year for a new project providing information and advice to older people who are at risk of homelessness or who may need to leave their home which may become unsuitable for their needs.
