Concerns over fuel bills

Concerns over fuel billsResearch by Consumer Focus has found that four out of ten households are worried about being able to afford their energy bills this winter. Of these, they have found that 70 per cent (around six million households across England) plan to cut back on heating their homes due to these worries.

However, it would seem that millions of pounds worth of help is being left unclaimed under Warm Front, the Governent’s scheme to help the poorest households in England to make their homes warmer and cut energy bills.
The Government has recently introduced changes that will make more people living on low incomes eligible for the Warm Front scheme. Citizens’ Advice and Age UK are urging people in England worried about their energy bills to find out if they are eligible for free heating and insulation improvements from Warm Front.

The heating and insulation improvements Warm Front offers could help thousands of households to stay warm and well and save up to £600 off their energy bills each year.

You can find out if you can get free help from Warm Front by calling 0800 316 2805 or by visiting your local Citizens’Advice Bureau or Age UK. Further information and an online application form are also available on www.direct.gov.uk.
