If you’re behind with gas, electric or other utility bills, here's what you can do:

  1. Contact the energy supplier and explain that you’re struggling to pay them. If you are behind with your payments, your supplier should treat you fairly and allow you to repay at a rate you can afford. If you’d like someone to do this on your behalf or need advice find a free debt adviser now.
