Community events

We help local communities become better informed about managing their energy bills and to switch their gas and electricity

Do you run a local voluntary group, charity, housing association or academic institution? Do you run a large business and want your employees to get the best energy deal?

The uSwitch Community Events team can visit you wherever you are in Great Britain free of charge to make sure that your members, residents or employees get the best deal on their energy supply.

What happens at an event?

Our experienced and friendly team of energy experts will work in partnership with your volunteer group, charity, housing association, faith organisation, or academic institution to show residents/members just how easy it is to save money on household bills by comparing energy plans.

We do this by running demonstrations of our website service, and by providing information on how best to compare utility prices.

In addition, we provide guest speakers and host Q&A sessions to address any queries your group may have.

We also provide advice leaflets that contain information on getting comprehensive household savings by comparing broadband, mobile phone service and insurance. Perhaps most importantly, we provide helpful information about how to save money on energy bills by being more energy efficient.

Can I trust that my group will get impartial advice?

Ofgem Confidence Code

uSwitch is an independent and impartial price comparison website. We have earned Ofgem's Confidence Code stamp of approval, which is a voluntary code of practice for online domestic price comparison services.

This code of practice makes our switching service reliable and provides reassurance for consumers. Requirements include independence, impartiality, the fair presentation of tariffs, and the accuracy of information presented.

Do you have any testimonials?

Yes! Here's what previous Community Events participants have said about us:

"Gareth and his colleagues attended our Eat or Heat roadshows we held throughout the Bradford district. We were really grateful for their attendance ... they went above and beyond their duties to talk to over 80+ carers.

Fuel poverty has been a major factor with carers, [and] many expressed how helpful it was to speak to representatives from uSwitch face-to-face about different tariffs, money saving tips and how to switch suppliers to help reduce fuel costs.

Also, a lot of carers said they did not feel pressured, as all advice given was impartial. It was nice to know all the work was done for them without having to telephone different fuel suppliers to see which tariff would work out best.

[The uSwitch Community Events team were] Really approachable, friendly advisors.”
