Home Energy Scotland support for households in lockdown

 As many of us will see our energy bills rise because of the current lockdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we continue to work with Home Energy Scotland who is keen to speak to anyone who is worried about this.

Home Energy Scotland is an energy advice service funded by the Scottish Government that provides free, impartial advice to help people stay warm, make the best use of energy and save money on their bills.

Advisors, now operating remotely, are taking calls. The team can help with:

Practical advice on ways to stay warm for less

  • Support for households with prepayment meters who are worried about topping up during lockdown

  • The latest information on emergency measures by energy suppliers to make sure vulnerable people do not get cut off during the coronavirus outbreak.
