Get Help to Cut your Fuel Bills
Rising fuel bills are stretching household finances and people are looking for ways to save money on their energy bills – and Stafford & Stone Citizens Advice Bureau is here to help.
Stafford & Stone Citizens Advice Bureau will give practical advice and help throughout Big Energy Week (16–21 January 2012) to help people cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.
The bureau will be running promotional events at a number of venues during the week, including Stafford Hospital (10am -2pm) on Wednesday 18th January and Silkmore Childrens Centre, Penkside (10am -12.30) and the Signposts Centre at Highfields (10am -3pm) on Thursday 19th January. We will be working in partnership with Beat The Cold and together we will help advise and support people with energy related issues.
There will also be additional telephone advice services being delivered throughout the county, people can ring the Adviceline on 08444 111 444 for further information.
You can also access this service at the local bureau offices in Stafford and Stone and pick up a leaflet with tips and advice on cutting your fuel bills.
CAB Services Manager Claire Davis said: “More and more people are coming to us for advice on how to spend less on their fuel bills. While we continue to help people on a daily basis with face to face advice – there is a real need to reach out to more people who are struggling and Big Energy Week will be a chance for us to do just that.”
Big Energy Week is an advice campaign coordinated by Citizens Advice to help consumers spend less on heating their home.
A new website – www.bigenergyweek.org.uk – is full of tips on how to cut your energy bills. And as part of Big Energy Week there will be events up and down the country where people can get practical advice on how they could spend less on heating their home.
