Hi to all

 

In the last few weeks I have been researching some stuff for a friend who is in lots of debt with the utilities and have came across this gem!

 

United Utilities Trust Fund.

 

Welcome to the United Utilities Trust Fund Site

 

Here you can apply for a grant (not repayable) in order to clear your utilities debts. There is an application form, and you need to send the bills to them, but they are willing to help people get back on track. So if you have an unpaid utilities bill including water / gas / elec and repaying them is causing you hardship then apply for help.

 

Remember, if no one applies for assistance then we run the chance of aid being retracted.

 

Here is a list of all the trust funds;

 

Water Trust Funds

 

A number of water companies operate charitable trust funds. Some offer help only with water and sewerage debt; others are prepared to help with other priority debts and even bankruptcy fees in certain situations. Others offer 'restart schemes'. These operate on the basis of you entering into a regular payment scheme, and payments made are then matched by the trust fund. If you maintain the arrangement, the remaining debt may be written off. You will need to contact the trust fund to find out how to apply. You will usually have to fill in a form. You may need an advice agency to help you. Phone us for advice.

For customers of Scottish and Southern who have fuel debt problems with them and /or may be suffering from fuel poverty.

 

I hope this helps someone. (let CAG know if it does)

 

energyplus Care:

 

energyplus Care is a new tariff for vulnerable customers who are worried about being cold because of acute housing, health or income issues. In other words, customers in ‘fuel poverty’.

 

 

WHAT’S ON OFFER?

· 20% discount on their current prices

· Free Energy Efficiency Advice

· Free Energy Efficiency measures from low energy light bulbs to an ‘A’ rated fridge

· Benefits entitlement check

 

HOW DO CUSTOMERS QUALIFY?

Each customer is assessed individually via a questionnaire by one of their energy efficiency advisors to determine the scale of ‘fuel poverty’. This is based on;

· Spending more than 10% of their total income on energy bills

· The type of property and how energy efficient it is

· Their household income / benefits received

· The customer’s disability / special needs

WHAT TO DO NEXT

· If you this applies to you, e:mail

priorityservices@scottish-southern.co.uk .

· Their address is Freepost, Scottish & Southern Energy, Cosham, Portsmouth PO6 2FE.

· If you prefer, you can telephone 0800 0727207.

Please don't switch unless you are absolutely sure it is the best step for you.


Any advice given by me is based solely on my experience in claiming, my experience in CAG or my opinion. I have no legal background. I want to encourage others to reclaim what is theirs.

 

Got a DCA breaking OFT guidance. Complain to the OFT about the DCA. Help put an end to these practices-
