Captain Cosy is here with a guide to Warm Home Discounts.
As we move closer to Winter and the cold weather hits, it can be costly to keep our homes warm. Captain Cosy has put together a list of schemes that can help with your energy bills that you might be eligible:
- Cold Weather Payment – if it’s very cold where you live (at or below 0 degrees) for a period of time, and you’re receiving certain benefits, you may be eligible to receive £25 a week for each 7-day period of cold weather.
- Warm Home Discount – this is a discount on your electricity bill. You may be eligible if you get Pension Credit or are on a low income.
- Winter Fuel Payment – this is an annual tax-free payment to help with heating costs for older people. Make sure you’re registered to get it – once you are, you’ll receive it every year without having to do anything.
If you’re struggling to pay your energy bills, then Trivallis’ Money Advice team is here to help you. For more information on how they can support, visit our Money Advice page now.
