Press Release – Energy Crisis

22nd February 2022

PRESS RELEASE

Dumfries & Galloway Citizens Advice Bureau

D&G Citizens Advice is Here to Help with Current Energy Crisis

Dumfries & Galloway Citizens Advice Service (D&G CAS) wants people to know they are here to help with soaring energy bills. With energy prices rising and the cost of living increasing, D&G CAS is here to advise and support those in need.

The support D&G CAS can give you includes:

With increasing energy bills following the price cap rise in October, rising inflation meaning higher prices in the shops, as well as recent reductions to Universal Credit we know people in the community may be struggling, but D&G CAS is here to help.

D&G CAS CEO, Phil Stewart, states:

“Around 1 in 4 households in Scotland were already in fuel poverty before this rise in energy costs and so the sharp increase in energy bills is really going to hit a lot of people in our community. We know people can feel helpless when they cannot pay their fuel bills, so we are urging people to contact us if they are needing help. Our advice is free, confidential and impartial. We do not want to see anyone in Dumfries and Galloway in fuel poverty if we can help it.”

You can contact D&G CAS on 0300 303 4321, by email at info@dagcas.org or through their website www.dagcas.org. If you prefer to get information online, you can visit the Money Map tool at moneymap.scot or the general advice website: www.citizensadvice.org.uk/scotland.
