This is Karen and Lee’s story
Chillier days call for hot brews warm showers and hearty meals. But we also understand that this time of year is tough for many of our customers.
We're currently helping more than 215,000 customers a year with our financial assistance schemes. But we know every story is different, and that’s why our team work with you to understand the support that you need.
Please share Karen and Lee’s story with anyone who might need an extra helping hand with their water bill.
Let's be there for each other and weather the winter together.

The following steps will help you make sure your bills are as affordable as possible.

Doing Right by Our Communities
If you’re struggling to pay your bill, we can help you find the right support scheme for you.
We work in partnership with local organisations and charities across our region to talk about all the schemes that we have available, and to find those customers who need our help the most.
