I’m following up on the email I sent previously about a series of films Changeworks has created in response to lockdown. All four films can now be viewed here:
As we continue to adjust to Covid-19 we’re all spending more time at home and using more energy than normal. Many households are experiencing financial strain and will be worried about the effect this will have on their energy bills. These films provide some advice and support on managing energy use and where to get help with heating and electricity concerns.
You can also still refer households you think would benefit from energy advice and fuel billing/debt support. Changeworks can support people to access funding they may be eligible for.

‘As we continue to adjust to Covid-19 we’re all spending more time at home and using more energy than normal. Many households are experiencing financial strain and will be worried about the effect this will have on their energy bills.
Whilst Changeworks is unable to provide face to face outreach services to support people looking for energy and fuel billing/debt advice, we are still here to help. We’ve teamed up with SGN to produce a series of short films providing advice and support on managing energy use and where to get help with heating and electricity concerns.
Our first video – where to get help with your gas and electricity concerns – is now live on YouTube.
Handy links can be found here:
We’ll be publishing three more videos over the next few weeks and we’ll be in touch to share these with you too.
