Energy 23 Campaign

Throughout the #energy23 campaign, Advice Direct Scotland, supported by our friends at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Scotland, and the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service (SFRS), will be looking at the safety issues associated with energy saving measures including electric blankets; candles; and heated items, such as hot water bottles and microwavable goods.

We will be focussing on the sources of support available to Scottish consumers who are struggling with energy costs, and key safety messaging as we move into the final winter months.

The campaign will focus specifically on safety, with information on product and fire safety – as well as indicating the dangers associated with certain energy-saving measures.

Advice Direct Scotland are the official partner of the Scottish Government for consumer and energy advice in Scotland.
