Worry Tree Cafe Update

We had a busy afternoon at Worry Tree on Monday joined by Johann and Oonagh.

Oonagh found some interesting information about your broadband. You may be eligible for a social tariff if you are in receipt of certain benefits like Universal Credit, Pension Credit, or Income Support.

Broadband providers involved in this scheme include Sky, EE, BT, Virgin and Vodafone. You can contact your provider directly. Or for further help, contact Age UK Digital Champions. They can support you with setting this up.

How a social tariff could help you

  • It’s available to those on a variety of benefits. If you or someone in your household claims Universal Credit, you could switch to any of the tariffs available.
  • It’s cheaper than a regular package. Current prices range from £10 to £20.
  • Fast, unlimited broadband. Most tariffs offer superfast broadband at speeds over 30 Mbit/s – fast enough for you to keep in touch with friends and family, stream HD films or shop online.
  • You’ll pay next-to-nothing to get set up. If you do have to pay any setup costs, these should only be small. Your provider should tell you before you sign up.
  • It could cost nothing to switch. If your provider offers a social tariff, you can switch to it at any time, free of charge.
  • The price won’t go up mid-contract. You won’t pay any more than what you agree at the start of the contract.
  • It costs nothing to leave. You won’t pay a fee to leave the tariff before the end of your contract.

Sadly, Worry Tree will be closed for the next two weeks due to upcoming Bank Holidays and the coronation of King Charles.

We will reopen on Monday 15th May at Whitehawk Inn. Look forward to seeing you then.
