The Government has two schemes to help those eligible with their heating bills during the Winter.
Warm Home Discount Scheme
You could get £140 off your electricity bill this Winter under the Government’s Warm Home Discount Scheme.
The money is not paid to you – it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between October and March.
You may be able to get the discount on your gas bill instead if your supplier provides you with both gas and electricity. Contact your supplier to find out.
The scheme opens on 18th October 2021.
Winter Fuel Payment
If you were born on or before 26th September 1955 you could get between £100 and £300 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’.
