Energy Saving Advice Sessions are being held by Community Action Norfolk this Winter.
As part of their Big Energy Saving Network partnership with Citizens’ Advice, Community Action Norfolk (CAN)will be holding free energy advice sessions for consumers and frontline workers. Sessions will last around an hour, and Emily Robertson and Bob Dye from CAN will be on hand to offer advice or assist with referrals to Citizens’ Advice or the Ombudsman.
We understand that the upcoming winter is a time of concern for many, so CAN are looking to offer support to people by training sessions which include the following.
- Practical energy saving advice and tips.
- Local and National support available.
- Discussions on issues around fuel poverty and poor health in cold homes.
- Advice and the opportunity for questions and answers after the session.
From 1st October, after months of warnings about the rising price of gas and electricity, caused by the invasion of Ukraine, consumers will finally feel the impact.
A combination of government schemes means that anyone who had been using comparatively little energy and paying up to £1,500 a year will see their bills fall. Heavy energy users will see prices rise by up to about 19%, according to Martin Lewis, the money saving expert. However most of the government support is only set to last until next April, so there are still big concerns about what happens next and how households will cope.
