Elderly residents looking to get a grip on their energy bills can learn more about how to do just that at a new education session this week.
Age Scotland and Dundee Voluntary Action are hosting a Warm and Well session in DVA’s offices at 10 Constitution Road on Thursday from 10am-noon.
The free roadshow will cover the main factors that contribute to high energy bills, as well as what can be done to tackle them.
Help will be on hand to advise attendees about the tips and tricks they can use to cut their bills and stay warm, including getting a smart meter, finding the best energy tarriff, the Warm Home Discount Scheme and other benefits that elderly people may be entitled to — as well as who they can go to if they need further advice.
The session has been organised by Nicola Mitchell, older peoples’ services development officer at DVA.
She said: “There are three problems that can lead to people struggling with their fuel bills — high tariffs, inefficient homes and low incomes.
“The Warm and Well sessions will be able to help shine some light on these issues and help you make sense of it all.”
Places are limited for this week’s session but a second session will be held on Wednesday March 7 from 2pm-4pm.
To book a place for either session, call Nicola on 01382 305745 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
