Energy Support

Types of Support

We offer support in a number of ways.  We provide links to generic support organisations such as charities in more specific areas, for a particular need or problem.  We also in some cases provide specific support, sometimes in the form of one-to-one help, sometimes special events or services. Finally, we can offer links to products which we believe can help in this area. In these last two cases, they contain affiliate links which mean that we may receive a commission for purchases made through these links.

The organisations in this category are generally government organisations or charities, set up to help people with this particular issue.

Kindle Unlimited

A lot of support comes in the form of additional focussed reading, and we use Amazon as a source of books.  We find reading on Kindle more convenient (you can change the font size when your eyes get tired!).  If you do read, we use Kindle Unlimited as a way of reading books cheaply, and you can get three months free by clicking the link below.
