1. Help paying your essential bills
Gas, electricity etc
If you think you’re paying too much for your utilities, use a switching service like USwitch to see if you can get a better deal.
Otherwise, get in touch with energy provider and ask them if they can lower your bills, or switch you to a cheaper tariff. If you’re struggling to pay your existing bill, ask them to put you on a payment plan, so you can pay smaller amounts.
If you don’t already pay monthly, get in touch with your council and switch to monthly direct debit payments.
If you’re struggling to pay anything right now, call your council and ask them to give you a payment holiday for a few months. You won’t be the only person in this situation. Do it as soon as you can, so they don’t try to bill you for the whole amount.
