    You can contact your energy supplier and you might be able to get some top up from them. You can have a look at their website to see what information they have regarding this.
    You can also speak to your Local Authority who may have extra funding to help with situations like this. Also a food bank maybe able to give you a voucher. See link for all the details.
    As it's a month until your next benefits, is it Universal Credit you're claiming? Have you recently been paid your monthly amount or is this a new claim?

    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.
