Rossendale and Darwen MP Jake Berry has teamed up with uSwitch to help families struggling with their fuel bills.

He has backed the free ‘send us your bill’ campaign from the price comparison experts, designed to help households without access to the internet find cheaper energy.

Consumers who are not able to go online to source accurate, and independent, information about energy prices are being encouraged to post their latest bills to uSwitch, who will then work out the best deals for them.

Mr Berry, who found a cheaper energy supplier by posting off his bill, said: “This is a brilliant initiative, aimed at helping vulnerable groups. It will particularly help the elderly, who too often miss out on internet energy deals, or fall prey to doorstep salesmen.”
