New Money Saving Service available from the CAB:

Sheffield CAB Debt Support Unit is offering community groups and charities a new money saving service where a small group of advisers visit them to independently and impartially help their clients find savings on their household bills by working through the clients' bills trying to find cheaper alternatives. Community groups and charities (not individuals) should email moneysavers@debtsupportunit.org.uk to find out more information on the service.

The average savings found from their big money saving drop-in event in February 2010 was ?? per year (??every month) just for gas and electricity bills. Previous clients on benefits have found savings of up to ??per month to spend on other things and save for their future. Their record saving found for one person on different types of bills is ??5 per year (??every month).
