Save money on your energy bills

Free and impartial advice to help you save money on your energy bills and keep your home warm is available from our Managing Money Better Service

We can help you reduce your energy bills by finding a more competitive tariff and switching supplier, as well as offering fuel debt advice. We run this service in partnership with the Prince Bishops Community Bank.

The average home energy bill is now £1,250 per year and there are many tariffs available from utility companies which can be confusing.

What we do

An experienced energy advisor from the Managing Money Better service can visit your home to carry out a free home energy assessment, which will include:

  • Assessing your fuel bills and help you to switch suppliers if savings can be made.
  • Making sure you understand your heating system and controls.
  • Providing energy efficiency advice and arrange practical support, if needed, such as insulation, draught excluders and bleeding radiators.

In addition to advice on your energy bills, they can:

  • Provide advice on benefit entitlements
  • Help with money management, including budgeting and how to set up a bank / savings account with the Prince Bishop Community Bank
  • Refer you to other relevant services that can help with finances, debt and home improvements if necessary.
