More than one in three people diagnosed with cancer say they feel the cold more. If you are going through cancer treatment, you may be at home often and spending more on energy costs.
If you are worried about paying your energy bills, you should tell your supplier that you have cancer and find out what help they can offer. You should be placed on a register that gives you access to extra support. There are also government schemes that could help you save money on your energy costs.
You could switch suppliers to make sure you’re getting the best deal. You can find cheaper alternatives using a price comparison website.
Making changes around the house can also help you keep warm, for example having insulation fitted.
Macmillan and npower work together to help people living with cancer keep warm without the worry. npower funds Energy Advisers on the Macmillan Support Line, who can support you in accessing schemes to help with gas, electricity and water bills. Call them on 0808 808 00 00.
