Hello I've been out since yesterday and just come home and the electrics gone .. I have 80p to my name so my freezer has gone and the fridge sad.. All the food wasted and I now have no electric!
Luckily I can bath little one because I have hot water but what should I do?
I don't get any money till Friday ..
Thank you in advance

Hi! Do you not have an emergency button on your meter?

Borrow from a friend or relative.

Contact your council or job centre depending who deals with social fund payments in your area.

Contact social services they can maybe help or point you towards a charity that can help.

Sell something on fb.

Sell something. TV/sky box/ old phone/shoes/clothes/ unwanted furniture. You'll have something instantly sellable. Or borrow from whoever you were staying with last night.
