PEOPLE concerned about their energy bills are being encouraged to seek advice from Durham County Council’s Managing Money Better service, run in partnership with Prince Bishops Community Bank.

The service provides a free and impartial home visit to ensure residents are on the most appropriate tariff, as well as giving fuel debt advice. They can also find out if they are entitled to the £140 Warm Homes Discount.

To arrange a home visit, phone 03000-268-000.
