Worried about energy price rises? Our Tom’s here to help.
Chances are you’ve heard about rising energy bills from October 2021- and the £20 decrease in Universal Credit could complicate things more for some families.
We’d previously shared this article on what to do if you’re worried about energy price rises- and one of our recommendations was to contact Tom Kirby.
As the Home Energy Adviser from Starts with you (our social enterprise subsidiary), Tom can help you to lower your bills and keep those worries at bay- and this week, he’s expanding his suite of expert energy advice with short videos to support even more people during winter.
#TomsTopSavingTips videos are available to watch (or share with those you care about) below.
They’re each just a couple of minutes long, and are designed to help everyone- not just our tenants. If you’re a tenant and need some more tailored support, you’re more than welcome to call Tom on 07782 522498, or email him using: firstname.lastname@example.org. Tom's support won’t cost you a penny.
He’ll work his money-saving magic by:
reviewing your energy tariffs,
advising on winter fuel payments,
providing tailored energy saving advice
