I can’t afford this bill. What should I do?

Firstly, you need to let us know so please contact us using the details below. There are things that we can do to help but we’ll need to talk to you so we can make sure you get the right help. It might be that you are entitled to a benefit or if you’re struggling to make ends meet generally, we can put you in touch with other organisations that will help you.
