If you are struggling to make your money last or worried about how you’ll pay your bills, our Money Talk Team advisers can help you ensure you're receiving the money you are entitled to and not paying over the odds for services.
Who are the Money Talk Team?
The Money Talk Team service will support you to maximise your income by ensuring you are not paying more for essential goods and service than you need to and that you are getting all the benefits, grants and exemptions (council tax, energy) you are entitled to. You can also access impartial money advice.
Talk to us over the phone or in person at your local Citizens Advice Bureau. It’s nothing scary, just a chat to see what you might be entitled to, and advice to help you make the most of your money. The advisers will check for you whether you’re getting as much income as you possibly could and find ways that you could pay out less each month.
Ways you might be able to save cash:
- Cheaper deals on things like gas and electricity
- Claiming benefits you might not know you’re entitled to
- Grants or exemptions you may be entitled to
If you have any money worries, or want to find out if you are missing out on money you are entitled to, the advisers will be able to talk you through your options and help you find the best way forward.
