The rising costs of energy bills
One other useful resource that we have used many times at ScotsCare is SHINE. Seasonal Health Intervention Network (SHINE) – are a fuel poverty referral network that ensures households get the help they need to reduce utility bills, tackle energy debt, and help households stay warm. They can be called on 0300 555 0195 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, though you don’t have to live in Islington to receive help.
Many of the Utility providers have their own sources of help, so it may be helpful to give them a call and ask if they offer any support. ScotsCare can’t pay your fuel costs but we do want to do to help in these difficult times – we can provide you with information on other sources of help. Call our helpline and ask to speak to the duty worker for more information.
