Warm Home Discount Scheme
Warm Home Discount Scheme goes live on 14 October for winter 2019 to 2020
The Warm Home Discount Scheme provides certain households at risk of fuel poverty with a one-off £140 discount on their electricity or gas bill.
People who get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit should receive a letter by mid-December 2019 which will tell them whether the discount will be applied automatically by their energy supplier, or if they need to contact the Warm Home Discount Team.
If they do need to contact the Warm Home Discount Team then applications must be submitted by 28 February 2020 otherwise they risk losing out.
A limited number of discounts are available for other low income households. People who think they may be eligible should contact their energy supplier as soon as possible for further information and to make a claim.
Our Weflare Rights Team are available to assist our tenants in making an application to Warm Home Discount schemes.
