    Hi @Daphne - & welcome to this helpful & supportive community. I think many people here feel the same about the costs with fuel. Scope may be able to help as they have a helpline about this:

    Hi @Daphne. Would anything, in particular, make this feel more manageable for you at the moment?

    I can see @chiarieds has already signposted you to Scope's disability energy support service. I am just wondering if we can provide you with any additional, targeted, support.

    Take care for now and we will look forward to hopefully hearing from you again soon  :)

    @Daphne hopefully the £66 per month help with energy bills from the govt. has started to help reduce the cost of heating for you, and the other COL payments as well. I know it doesn't help but many many people and families are going to really struggle this winter, also 2 things that I'm finding helpful atm on facebook are 2 great groups "reduce your supermarket spend". and "skint dad" (you don't meed to be male or a dad for that one.
