Have you thought about switching your energy provider, but not found the time to do it?
Come to one of our drop in sessions in March 2018 (see below for dates and venues), and we’ll help you find your options there and then, using an impartial tool.
You’ll need to bring this information with you :
- The name of your supplier and the tariff you are on
- How much energy you used in the last year
- How you currently pay for your energy
- Your postcode
This information is on your bill and annual statement from your energy supplier – ring us if you’re not sure how to find it.
If you are on a pre-payment meter, you may not save as much by switching , but it may still be worth your while coming to the drop in.
If you’re not sure whether the drop in is for you , or want to know more please contact Liz Broadley on 07852 173723 or email Liz.firstname.lastname@example.org

Consultation on the Government green paper will close at noon on Friday 2 March 2018.
The consultation on this green paper on children and young people’s mental health sets out this Government’s ambition to ensure that those who need it are able to access the right help for their mental health, in the right place and at the right time.
The green paper focuses on earlier intervention and prevention particularly in or linked to schools and colleges.
A green paper is a document where the Government states what it wants to do, so that people can tell the Government what they think.
There is a quick read version of the children and young people’s mental health green paper to explain what changes the Government want to make. The changes will affect:
- pupils, students and staff at schools and colleges
- specialist mental health services
- families and communities
More in-depth information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/transforming-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-provision-a-green-paper but the actual consultation process is through another website.
