Keep warm this winter
Do you find it hard to pay your gas and electricity bills?
- is your home hard to heat?
- would you like to check you are getting all the benefits and financial help you are entitled to?
- is keeping warm in winter made more difficult by poor health, having a disability, mental health issues, having young children under 5, or living 'off gas'?
If you answered 'YES' to one of these questions, contact Dorset Community Action who can help with advice, benefit claims, switching energy suppliers, home improvements, loans and grants.
