Are you struggling to keep warm this winter? Are you unsure about how to switch your energy supplier?

You are not alone; as we reported yesterday its Cold Homes Week and shockingly last winter someone died of the cold every 6 minutes. Many people are finding the combination of rising fuel costs, low income and poorly-insulated rural housing, a real problem.

Dorset Community Action, with sponsorship from Magna Housing, is running another drop in session for you to come along and discuss your individual needs and concerns, and get some advice on how to keep warm and save some money. You can find out about how to switch energy supplier over a cup of tea and biscuits provided by the Co-op, and receive a free energy saving appliance provided by our friends at Dorset Energy Advice CentreFirst Dorset Credit Union will also offer support and ideas for people suffering financial hardship.

Come along to:

Willowbed Hall
Putton Lane

Pop in any time between 2pm to 6pm and spread the word to those that would benefit from this help and advice.

No booking is needed. Find out more at: www.dorsetcommunityaction.org.uk
