I am financial struggling to pay any of my bills plus I can’t even afford to feed myself Wat do I do
Hi @NANNIE ,
From https://help.bulb.co.uk/hc/en-us/articles/115003510972-What-should-I-do-if-I-m-having-trouble-paying- (searching ‘Help’ for the word ‘financial’) suggests:
Some of the ways we may be able to help include:
Agreeing to a more convenient payment method
Agreeing on a payment plan based on what you can afford
Advice on how to reduce how much energy you use to lower your bills
Switching to a prepayment meter so you can pay for your energy as you use it by regularly topping up with credit
If you’re already on prepayment meters we can change your repayments to help you manage your bills.
Where can I get independent advice and help with energy debt?
