Practical help available includes: food, clothing, a shower, use of a phone, PC, and laundry.

We have recently heard about the government’s £140 Warm Home Discount Scheme. You may be able to apply to your energy supplier for a £140 energy credit if you are on a low income or get the guarantee credit element of pension credit. The scheme appears to be for Winter 2018/19, so you may be too late to apply now. It may be worth checking though, or looking again next Winter 2019/20.
