We have contacted all families in Calderdale that are eligible, either by letter or email. There is no application needed – funding will be awarded automatically once they have provided bank details. All they need to do is follow the instructions in the letter/email and we will do the rest.
To date we have awarded almost £500k to over 4,500 families.
If you know anybody that has been contacted by us, please reassure them that this is legitimate and encourage them to take action.
Frequently Asked Questions and a link to the secure portal are now live on our website.
As the temperature plummets and the initial cold weather starts to become a long term reality, it may be time to consider reviewing your energy supplier.
Citizens Advice Calderdale has an Energy Champion ready to support you with this process and want everyone in Calderdale to be on the cheapest energy tariff and to have a warm home and keep healthy this winter.
What can we do?
Citizens Advice will train all your volunteers and front line workers on how to use comparison websites and give them the tips of the trade to saving their clients money.
We also take referrals for clients who need us to help them get some cheaper options for their utilities. This can be done over the phone.
