We’re building a library of useful information to help UK households manage the cost-of-living crisis, and make life simpler and fairer.

We’re organising this information by category (energy, insurance, broadband, etc) and by topic.

This is a work in progress, and we welcome your suggestions and input to improve the usefulness and quality of our information.

About Nous

Nous is an AI-powered money-saving tool that saves households up to £1,000 a year or more and spares countless hours of admin by managing household services such as energy, broadband, mobile and mortgages.

Nous keeps track of when contracts end and when new deals emerge, ensuring our members always pay fair prices and aren’t hit by loyalty scams.

Unlike switching and price comparison sites which make their money through commissions and kickbacks, Nous gives any money earned via commissions back to our members in the form of monthly rewards. This means we are able to maintain a strict commitment to neutrality, and also save our members hundreds pounds a year more.

<aside> 🌐 You can find more about the people behind Nous and why we started the business on our About us page, and find out more about our products and services on our home page.


If you are struggling

The rising cost of living has already affected millions of households and if you’re struggling to pay essential bills, you’re not alone.

Some households may need urgent or more specialist help than we can provide. If you’re unable to pay a bill, the first step is to contact your provider and tell them. They are best placed to make sure you are receiving any financial assistance you may be entitled to.
