Garvald and Morham Low Carbon Community: Help with energy bills

GMCC and a group of local volunteers are working with Changeworks and Home Energy Scotland on a project which aims to help residents of rural areas access practical assitance and advice around heating your home. Not only will we be creating a ‘Meet the Experts’ event in Garvald Vllage Hall on Saturday 3rd February, we will also be sharing information on a variety of these topics over the coming month, through this site and the Facebook channels.

Support available – fuel debt or energy bills

If you or someone you know is struggling to deal with fuel debt or energy bills, support is available to provide you with free practical advice and information. For further support information, you can contact Citizens Advice Scotland online or call 0800 028 1456, or contact EnergyAdvice.Scot online or call 0808 196 8660 for further support and information. They may even be able to speak with the energy supplier on your behalf.

Warm Home Discount
The Warm Home Discount takes £150 off your electricity bill if you are eligible. You can check this by first seeing if your energy supplier is signed up to the scheme and then contacting them about their criteria and how to apply. The scheme for winter 2023-2024 opened in September so act now to avoid missing out.

Advisers will also be on hand at our event on 3rd February, Garvald Village Hall.
