Supporting non-English speakers

Our services are for everyone and we know how hard it can be for some to access information.

We’re immensely proud of the close working relationships we’ve forged with organisations which support minority groups Picture of a mum on the phone with a child playingand take pride in ensuring our energy and money saving assistance reaches far and wide.

We're keen to build new relationships too - so, if you work for a community organisation that represents a minority group, get in touch. 

Call our Communities Officer today on 0131 555 8688 or email us.

We're happy to translate

We’re a partner of Happy to Translate, the initiative that supports organisations to engage with customers who speak little or no English.

Regardless of what language our customers may speak, where they’re from or what barriers they face, we make sure that we can clearly communicate with them to ensure they receive a quality service.
