Debt Awarenes Week: Help with Energy Bills

Next week is Debt Awareness Week when organisations around the country seek to raise awareness on the importance of dealing with debt. There are a lot of solutions and different ways to resolve any debt problems.

The independent charity, The Scottish Gas Energy Trust (SGET) as well as Scottish Gas and StepChange Debt Charity all offer free financial help and advice. SGET can provide grants to help pay off gas and electricity debts and to purchase energy efficient white goods.

January can be financially difficult time for many so I’d strongly encourage anyone who is worried about their energy bills to get in touch with the Scottish Gas Energy Trust to get any help and advice they may need. You don’t have to be a Scottish Gas customer to use this helpline and the help given is completely free.

The trust has provided more than £85 million of help and assistance to 175,000 people since it was established in 2004, you can contact the Trust on 01733 421 060 or via email on
