Surrey County Council is supporting all residents in the county with the launch of a new Online Energy Advice Tool, as energy bills are expected to further increase in April 2023.
Residents can use the new online tool which will ask a series of short questions and depending on the answers will offer tailored information on grants, support and advice, and non-financial help on a range of topics including:
- Free or part-funded schemes to make homes more energy efficient
- Signpost to debt relief grants
- Where to find additional services such as clothes and food banks
- Fuel vouchers
Marisa Heath, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “This winter has and will continue to cause many communities to struggle and face difficult decisions. Our new online tool is designed to give residents information on the support they can benefit from and ensure they get the best support they can.
“Since our Warm Hubs launched towards the end of last year we have seen communities come together and support one another to keep warm and hope this tool is just another way we can reach out to support everyone who needs it.”
We want to reach out to everyone and understand not everyone is online, which is why the online tool will also be available at the majority of Warm Hubs, as well as by using our welfare support phone line, ensuring that everyone can access the support on offer.
The Online Energy Advice Tool is available now at www.surreyenergyadvice.org.uk.
All financial, health and welfare information is also available on the Surrey County Council Welfare Hub.
