Hi, I hope you’re all well. Just a quick message for the newer members in the UK. I have mentioned it before but we’ve had a few new members who might not know it’s available as it’s not widely advertised.
If you’re on an income less than £16,000 a year and in receipt of benefits you may be eligible for warm home payments, an amount of £140, from your electricity supplier to help with the cost of fuel for winter. It’s a scheme set out by the government to help those on a low income to heat their homes.
Each supplier has different criteria but if you look on their websites they should have a list and instructions on how to apply. They are accepting applications now for this year, so it may be worth a look, you’ve got nothing to lose. It won’t cover the entire bills but it definitely helps.
