    Scope have a disability energy support helpline, see link.
    Your energy supplier may also have some extra funding to help those most in need, you will need to look at their website to see exactly what's available.
    Do you work or claim benefits? If you're claiming benefits are you claiming everything you're entitled to?

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello there @kimbolee96 and welcome, thanks for reaching out. 

    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling with bills at the moment. As Poppy has mentioned, we have a Disability Energy Support Service, which has lots of guidance and information on managing bills, as well as a dedicated helpline you can call. 

    Can I ask if you're getting enough support with your mental health lately? 

    If we can help with anything further, please ask, and we'll do what we can to help out :)
