Kidderminster Shuttle: Wyre Forest CAB on hand to give energy bill advice Wyre Forest CAB on hand to give energy bill advice

WYRE Forest Citizens Advice will be taking part in a national campaign to help people save money on their gas and electricity bills.

The Big Energy Saving Week takes place from Monday to next Friday when Wyre Forest CAB volunteers will be on hand to give advice on how switching suppliers and insulating homes can save money.

Kate Bennett of the Wyre Forest CAB said: "More and more people are coming to us for advice on how to spend less on their fuel bills and manage their costs.

"Whilst we continue to help people on a daily basis with face to face and online advice, there is a real need to reach out to more people who are struggling and Big Energy Saving Week will enable us to do just that."

This initiative comes after a successful Big Energy Week in January last year which gave advice to more than 75,000 people nationally.

The campaign, organised by Citizens Advice, is in association with energy suppliers, other charitable partners and the Government to give people expert tips and information on how to cut the amount of energy they use.

For more information and free advice visit adviceguide.org.uk or call 0844 4111 303 or 01562 60194 for a face to face appointment.

Calls to the 01562 number are charged at "geographic rate" or, more likely, count towards inclusive allowances on landlines and mobile phones.

Calls to the 0844 number cost 5p to 12p/min (plus 15p connection fee) from landlines and 20p to 41p/min from mobiles. These calls are not inclusive.
Calls to the 0844 number incur a 7p/min Service Charge to the benefit of the called party. This Service Charge will shortly have to be declared.

No mention of the 'warm home scheme' !
You can save £135 in electricity yearly,if you're on certain benefits. Apply via .gov website.
If you meet the criteria & apply between nov 13 - march 14, your electric company send you a letter/voucher for £135.
No-one tells you about that though! Hope it helps people:)
