Worried about your energy bills? You don’t have to feel alone. There are a range of support schemes and discounts out there.
Ways to get help
Financial support is out there, whether you’re struggling with your energy bills or looking into funding for renewable heating systems. Our guides cover what financial support is available, and how to apply.
Cost of Living Payments
The government provides Cost of Living Payments to help people pay their energy bills.
Warm Home Discount
This one-off payment helps with increases in energy bills during the winter months. It’s designed to make things easier for those living on a low income or pension.
Winter Fuel Payment
This annual tax-free payment was introduced to help people born on or before 25 September 1957 manage their heating costs during the colder months.
Priority Service Register
This is a free support service offered by energy suppliers to help people in vulnerable situations. Discover the number of reasons why people may be eligible.
What grant funding is available?
If you are making home improvements, it’s important to get familiar with any funding support you may be entitled to. From grants for installing renewable systems to home efficiency grants, we guide you through the options available.
Other financial assistance
There are a range of services, grants and schemes available to help householders manage their energy bills. We’ve run through them all in our helpful guide so that you can check whether you are eligible.
It’s important to check that, if eligible, you are receiving the right benefits. You could be missing out on additional support, especially at at time when prices and bills are rising.
Health and wellbeing
It’s important that we look after ourselves and each other. On top of the financial support offered to householders, there are a number of organisations that can offer free and confidential mental health and wellbeing support.
