Creating Affordability

Auriga can help ensure the households you serve have affordable choices to meet their water and energy needs. We offer a diverse mix of affordability and debt services ranging from social tariffs to money advice.

Auriga stands out from other providers because we offer the most comprehensive range of affordability and debt assistance services. The knowledge we hold around money advice and water poverty, fuel poverty, health and financial capability helps us to identify the affordability and debt services that are most effective.
