To anyone who is struggling financially, and has a pre-payment meter with NPower. If you have less than £4 on your meter, and don’t get paid for several days, phone and ask for a ‘Fuel Voucher.’ It is £49 and can be applied for twice a year, and you DO NOT have to repay.
A PIN number is texted to your mobile phone.
