Grants and Schemes

There are various grants and schemes available to help you cover the cost of fuel bills and make your home energy efficient.

Winter Fuel Payments: This is a payment made to people who have reached Pension Credit age

Cold Weather Payments:  If you are on certain benefits, you may be eligible for these if the weather in your area falls to 0° centigrade or below for seven days in a row

Warm Home Discount: If your electricity supplier belongs to this scheme and you're getting the guarantee part of Pension Credit, you will automatically get an annual discount of £140 off your electricity bill.

This year, many other people on certain benefits may also be eligible for this discount but will have to claim. Click the link at the start of this paragraph to find out more about who might be eligible and how to claim.

Grants for Energy Efficiency: If you are on a low income and claim one of a range of income and disability related benefits, you may be able to get a grant to help with the costs of improving the energy efficiency of your home. For example by updating heating systems or insulation.

The Energy Savings Trust also has information to help you search for grants and offers to make improvements to energy efficiency. Please note that you need to look at the information relevant to the country of the UK you live in.
