Severn Trent and Age UK – Help with water bills

Here are two ways that it is possible to get help with the ever increasing cost of living, don’t be afraid to ask.

Severn Trent Water – Big Difference Scheme

I was recently given information from an Ashfield Council stall in Hucknall on market day, giving details of a possible discount of up to 90% of your water bill for eligible houses.

The two main criteria are:-

a) Live alone and/or

b) Have an annual household income of less than £20,048.

For more details either visit, or phone 0121 355 7766 option 6.

One of our members has contacted them and had her water bill reduced from £50 pm to £11 pm. Cannot guarantee anything, but worth a try – good luck.

Age UK

If you are aged 50+ and would like to be warmer and wiser about energy, they are here to help.

They can:      Fit FREE energy saving measures such as draught excluders, timers and light                    bulbs.

                     Advise on how to reduce your energy usage and bills.

                     Advise on how to maintain a healthy temperature at home.

                     Maximise your income through energy checks.

                     Provide energy saving tips, information and signposting.
