Get help paying utility bills

If you’ve got utility bills that you can’t afford to pay, the first thing you need to do is let your supplier know that you will struggle to pay the bill. They may be able to offer an extension to your due date or an affordable payment plan.

However, if your utility supplier is unable to help you find a workable solution, Anglicare may be able to help.

“Thank you so, so much for your help and support. This is the first time in a decade I've been on top of my bills. Thankyou!"

Utility bill assistance schemes

The State Government, along with several major utility suppliers, offer assistance schemes that Anglicare uses to help you stay on top of your bills.

In addition to this financial assistance, Anglicare can also:

  • talk to your utility supplier and advocate on your behalf
  • work with you to assess your financial situation
  • ensure you have achievable plan for paying your utilities bills in future.

The number of clients that Anglicare can currently offer this assistance to is limited due to high demand. However, the good news is that you can apply for this same assistance directly, at Service NSW

To advise your supplier that you are waiting for an Energy Accounts Payment Assistance (EAPA) assessment in order to avoid late fees and disconnection.

Get help paying medical bills

Your health is important, and specialist appointments and medicines can be hard on the budget… especially when they come out of the blue!

If you’ve been putting off seeing a specialist because you just can’t afford the cost, then Anglicare may be able to speak with them on your behalf and negotiate a lower fee. Or if you’ve been delaying a procedure or starting a new medication until you can afford the extra expense, then we can help you apply for a low or no interest loan, so you don’t have to keep waiting.
