More money in your pocket
Many people are having difficulties due to the rising cost of living. You might not realise you're entitled to some help. You can find out about the range of local help that's available, as well as national support, on this website.
In response to the cost of living crisis, the government has also launched a campaign to let everyone know what national support is available. This is called Help for Households.
Remember to redeem your energy vouchers
If you have a traditional prepayment meter for your electricity, you'll receive six vouchers as part of the Energy Bills Support Scheme. You need to redeem each voucher within 90 days of when it was issued. All vouchers must be redeemed by 30 June 2023.
If you've not received your vouchers or they've expired, please contact your electricity supplier. Your supplier will be able to re-issue the vouchers to you.
If you're not sure who your supplier is, find out on the Ofgem website.
