The government has recently announced that customers who don’t pay for their energy directly to their supplier will be eligible for a £400 discount on their fuel bills. This includes
- care home residents
- residents of park homes
- tenants in some private and social rented homes
- residents of caravans and houseboats on registered sites
- farmers living in domestic farmhouses
- off-grid households
The application process will open in January 2023 on the government’s website. We have not been told what the process will be for people who cannot apply online.
Although local councils will be responsible for checking and processing applications, we will not be able to answer any queries until we receive more information from the government about the grant process.
Contact details for queries should be available on the government's website when the application process opens.
