On the pitch, there are a number of ways that you could change things to make it a bit easier for the players.
Whilst it is unlikely these changes will be coming in any time soon…
Off the pitch at home, one action you can take to make things a bit easier is to get a smart meter. A smart meter could make managing your household finances and energy use a bit more straightforward.
Smart meters record how much electricity or gas you use – just like your existing meters. But with a smart meter, you can also see how much energy you’re using, on an in-home display (IHD). The smart meter automatically sends your meter readings to your supplier, meaning you don’t have to.

There is also an accessible version of the in-home display called an accessible in-home display (AIHD). These are available from some suppliers. They have larger buttons and can read information out loud.
An AIHD could be helpful if you:
- are blind or partially sighted
- have difficulties using your hands or wrists
- have difficulties with memory loss
You can contact your energy supplier to find out if you are eligible for a smart meter and an AIHD and how soon you can get one.
Some homes can’t get a smart meter yet. Your energy supplier can tell you if you can have one and how soon it can be installed.
