MS urges North Wales households to seek up to £1,500 in support with energy costs this winter

An MS has urged households in North Wales to find out if they are entitled to additional support with energy costs this winter.

Llŷr Gruffydd, who represents the region in the Senedd, has pointed to grants of up to £1,500 for energy customers who are in debt, as the cost of living crisis continues to bite. 

The Plaid Cymru politician sponsored an event in the Senedd, in which he and other Senedd Members met with representatives from British Gas and its parent company Centrica to discuss the help and support available to households. 

The supplier has committed €100 million to help consumers since the start of the energy crisis 

The British Gas Energy Support Fund, and the Individuals and Families Fund provide grants of up to £1,500 to thousands of energy customers with debt.

In addition, the British Gas Energy Trust delivers millions in grants, energy efficiency measures, fuel vouchers and advice to all energy consumers. 

Residents don't need to be a British Gas customer to seek support from the British Gas Energy Trust.

Llŷr Gruffydd MS said: "Many households across North Wales are facing a tough winter as gas and electricity prices remain stubbornly high. 

“Rampant inflation means that prices have gone up across the board and this has forced people into debt which has left many struggling to pay their bills.

“While it’s true that the energy price cap has recently been lowered, prices are still very high and the cost of living crisis continues to impact many households. 

“I want to make sure people know about the support available to help them. I strongly  encourage anyone who is struggling to speak to their energy supplier and with organisations such as the British Gas Energy Trust.

“One thing I want to emphasise is that you don’t have to be a British Gas customer to receive support from the British Gas Energy Trust.”
