Have you had your energy supply disconnected?

Have you had your energy supply disconnected?

Sometimes bills are forgotten, mail stays in the letterbox or you just can’t afford to pay your electricity or gas bill. You may face disconnection of your energy supply or worse have already been disconnected. Contact your provider straight away to find out how to stop the disconnection or get reconnected.

If you cannot come to an agreement with your provider, call us.

We are the Energy and Water Ombudsman NSW (EWON), a free, fair and independent complaints-handling service for all electricity and gas customers in NSW, and some water customers.

Ask your provider…

  1. For an extension, or to set up a payment plan. Be realistic and only agree to a payment plan you can afford. Your provider must offer at least two payment plans within 12 months on request.
  2. To be transferred to an affordability program for longer term support, if you are experiencing ongoing difficulties
  3. If fees for disconnection and/or reconnection can be waived considering your circumstances.

Electricity must be reconnected within two business days of your request, and gas within five business days.

Energy Accounts Payment Assistance (EAPA)

If you’re struggling to pay your current household energy bill because of a short-term financial crisis or emergency, such as unexpected medical bills, or reduced income due to COVID-19, you could be eligible for the NSW Government’s EAPA vouchers.

Vouchers are worth $50 and are sent electronically to your energy retailer. The number you receive will depend on your circumstances. Contact an EAPA provider service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/energy-accounts-payment-assistance-eapa-scheme or call Service NSW on 1377 88 to apply.

You cannot be disconnected if…

  • You make payments towards an agreed payment plan
  • You owe less than $300 and have committed to a payment plan
  • Your home is registered as having life support equipment
  • It’s before 8am or after 3pm
  • It’s a Friday, weekend, or the day before/of a public holiday

Together: Sharing, Working and Moving – Feedback from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workers

Together: Sharing, Working and Moving – Feedback from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workers

How the human services sector can build strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers, organisations and communities

Better Chances Forum (BCF) Strengthening Days for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family support and early childhood workers have been held in the Northern Rivers in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Over two years, 110 people have participated in face-to-face events and online workshops.

An important part of the Strengthening Days project is sharing collective feedback from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers with the wider sector about how non-Indigenous services and workers can work more collaboratively alongside Indigenous people, organisations and communities in the most culturally appropriate and supportive way.

This brief includes feedback from 2019/2020 Strengthening Days and builds on a presentation from participants in the first Strengthening Day to over 130 workers and managers at the Regional Better Chances Forum in Lennox Head in June 2019.

The BCF Strengthening Days have been supported by Social Futures, NSW Department of Communities and Justice, YWCA Communities for Children and Northcott, and facilitated by We Al-li.
