We may be able to reduce your water bill, if you don't have enough money coming in to cover your most important bills.

 

With the recent rise in the cost of living, we understand it may be difficult to afford all of your household bills.

Do you have debts with other companies?

If you have other debts, we’d suggest you get free advice on managing your bills by speaking to a debt advice organisation, such as StepChange Debt Charity. 

 

They’ll talk with you to complete a budget of your household income and outgoings. If this shows that you have more going out than you have coming in each month, we want you to send this to us; email a copy to supportplus@nwl.co.uk. You could get a discount* of up to 50% off your current water charges and help with your debt with us.

How StepChange can help you
  • It's free and completely confidential. 
  • You can complete the process online or switch between online and phone.
  • Do it at a time to suit you - you can always pause and come back later.
  • They'll help you to set up a solution.
  • Getting debt advice won't involve a credit check. 

Visit their website www.stepchange.org or call them on 0800 138 1111.

 

There are also other free debt companies you can go to for debt advice, such as Citizen's Advice, the Money Advice Service.
