This Friday, 26th February, Citizens Advice Manchester is holding events in Wythenshawe and Withington as part of the Nation’s Biggest Housewarming. We invite local residents to come along and have a cuppa, cake and chat with our energy advisers.
The initiative is organised by national fuel poverty charity NEA to coincide with national Fuel Poverty Awareness Day. Organisations and individuals up and down the country are arranging their own ‘housewarming’ events to raise awareness and help fight fuel poverty.
Jo Boswell of Citizens Advice Manchester’s Energy Team said: “People need help to make sure their energy costs aren’t getting the best of them. In the last four years households have seen their energy costs rise by a third, at seven times the rate of wages. To help local people who are struggling with energy costs, our advisers will be on hand at the Housewarming events for advice:
