We can help you access support to identify the best deals for energy provision and access national and local grants where applicable, including Frimley Fuel Allotments and Project Wenceslas – sponsored by Woking Lions Club.
This was set up by Woking Lions Club to help the people of Woking and surrounding areas who may be struggling to pay their fuel bills and have possibly built up debt to their energy supplier.
The Department for Work and Pensions is funding Citizens Advice to provide independent advice and digital support with making a Universal Credit application – the ‘Help to Claim’ scheme.
