    If you are struggling, contact your energy supplier, you shouldn't be paying anymore for your energy needs then somebody without a meter. There are other organisations you could speak to as well who can help.

    Hello @ooo1

    It might also be worth you getting in touch with Scope's Disability Energy Support (DES) Service. You will be able to speak with someone, for free, and get support around numerous energy-related things, i.e.:
    • managing energy and water debt
    • changing your meter
    • energy and water efficiency
    • accessing benefits, grants, and trusts
    • contacting or complaining to your supplier
    • understanding your gas and electricity bills
    • understanding how to use your heating systems
    Just visit the DES application form to register for support. Please note: email support is currently unavailable and anticipated back at the end of this month, however there is telephone support.

    Good luck and please let us know how you get on.
