Energy Bills Workshop 

The cost of our essentials, food, energy, and rent have risen sharply over the last year or so. The 'cost-of-living crisis' is impacting millions of households in the UK. In this workshop, Money Advice Scotland will aim to help participants understand the context of the crisis, and how it has affected the price of the energy we use. Participants will have the chance to discuss their energy bills and the information presented on these, check the latest Price Cap figures, look at some energy saving tips and provide information on the support available if you are struggling with energy debt. 

This workshop is being delivered online on Thursday 18th April, 10am - 11am. You can book your place via Eventbrite here
