Citizens Advice availability over Christmas holidays

At the darkest time of the year, it’s good to know that Citizens Advice is there to support you. If you’re in difficulties and need help or advice over Christmas and New Year, you can call us on 0808 278 7907 (Adviceline). The line will be open on 24 and 29-31 December, then from 4 January onwards.

If you normally pick up supplies at a Food Bank, remember that the opening hours could change over the holidays. It’s a good idea to check with the Food Bank before you set out.

Also bear in mind that if you have a pre-payment meter for your energy supplies and can’t afford to top up, you can get temporary credit. Your supplier might add this credit automatically, but if they don’t, ask for it. Check the supplier’s website and go to https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/consumer/energy for more information.


Citizens Advice information on vanishing energy suppliers  

Many people have recently had the disconcerting experience of seeing their energy supplier break up and go out of business during the recent energy price fluctuations. It sounds pretty drastic, but the situation isn’t as bad as it seems. 

If you are one of those affected, remember these key facts: first of all, the gas or electricity supply itself won’t be interrupted, so don’t be concerned about that. Next, you should know that Ofgem, the industry regulator, will automatically move you to a new supplier. This usually takes a few weeks. 

Wait for your new supplier to contact you. They will explain what will happen with your new account. But contact the new supplier yourself if you haven’t heard from them within two weeks. You can check on www.citizensadvice.org.uk (“check who’s taken over your energy supply”) if you’re not sure who your new supplier is. 

While you’re waiting to hear from the new supplier, it’s a good idea to take meter readings (and a photo of the readings) as they might prove useful later. Make a note of your account balance too. Keep any old bills you have, as these can help prove your payment history, credit balance or debt. 

If you aren’t happy with your new supplier or tariff, you can switch suppliers.  Look at “switch energy supplier” on our website or ring the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 0808 223 1133.  

Many people are seeing their energy bills increase significantly. If you are one of them, and worried about being able to meet these higher energy payments, please contact Citizens Advice on our Adviceline number 0808 278 7907.  

Citizens Advice has slightly different advice for small businesses whose energy suppliers have gone out of business. Please visit the Citizens Advice website.
