Angus Citizens’ Advice Bureau (CAB) is to help local people find out how they can cut hundreds of pounds from their energy bills.
As the rising cost of living continues to put pressure on household budgets, the CAB service is running an intensive week of free advice to help Angus consumers beat fuel poverty.
From Monday the service will be offering this free, expert advice in Arbroath and campaigners will also be out and about in the community to offer help to consumers.
A stand will be set up within Arbroath Library on Monday (January 27) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On Friday (January 31) they will be in the town’s Morrisons store from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A spokesperson from Angus CAB said: “At the CAB we are seeing so many people now who are in fuel poverty and having to make decisions every day about whether to switch the heating on or put food on the table.
The frustrating thing is that this is actually unecessary for many people because there is help available, but people are just not accessing it.
“This campaign is all about making people aware of that, and encouraging them to get all the help they are entitled to.”
Big Energy Saving Week is a national campaign, run by the Citizens’ Advice service.
