Citizens Advice Energy Roadshow – to help vulnerable individuals

Posted on Updated on

Do you run a group for vulnerable clients? Do you want Citizens Advice to provide your group with support on energy advice?

Citizens  Advice is heading out across Calderdale on an Energy Roadshow starting 20 January 2020.

There is considerable evidence that the most vulnerable are often among those most disengaged from the energy market and lack the confidence necessary to save money by taking action on tariffs, switching and improving energy efficiency.  We’re here to help clients have the confidence to switch and  save.

If you’d like training and advice for your group contact Sarah or Susan on 01422 652250.
