5.5 million people behind on energy bills

Industry News | 22/06/23

According to new research by the Money Advice Trust, the charity has found that an estimated 5.5 million people are now behind on paying their energy bills, as of the end of April this year. This is an increase of 2.1 million people when compared to the same time last year. The charity is calling on the government to introduce a Help to Repay scheme to support those households that are struggling to keep up with energy bill payments as the cost-of-living pressures continue.
