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.

How our calculations work
<aside> 🚧 We are working hard to add new categories & topics. Watch this space.
Nous is an intelligent assistant that saves people money on their bills and household services including energy, broadband and mobile, finding fair deals for our members and handling all the hassle of changing providers. 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 penalties.
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 saves Nous 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.
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.
