Money Management and Avoiding Fuel Debt

National Energy Action with the support of the Department of Energy and Climate Change have funding to deliver a number of FREE introductory level money management and fuel debt training sessions.  

This course provides an introductory level of training in money management and budgeting skills, how to deal with personal debt and where to seek assistance.

It is suitable for front-line staff to understand good personal budgeting skills and how to avoid domestic fuel debt.


  • Money management and personal budgeting 
  • Income maximisation 
  • Causes of debt 
  • Priority and non-priority debts 
  • The consequences of different types of debts 
  • Where to seek assistance with debt 
  • Attending a money advice appointment 
  • Avoiding fuel debt – consumer responsibilities 
  • Common meter issues causing debt 
  • Understanding gas and electricity bills 
  • Different fuel payment options and tariffs 
  • How to find the best domestic energy deal

As this is an introductory level course it is aimed at front-line staff with no or very little experience of money management or debt advice. Likewise if you have specialist staff within your organisation that focus on these areas this course won’t be relevant.
