Energy bill support (and not eligible to receive automatically)

Energy Bill Support Scheme Alternative Funding

Funded by the UK Government, a new scheme launched on Monday 27 February aimed at providing financial support of £400 to eligible households.

You may be eligible to apply if your main home is:

  • a residential park home
  • on a boat on a permanent residential mooring
  • on a permanent Gypsy and Traveller site
  • part of a heat network without an electricity meter
  • in social or private rented accommodation that has a business energy connection or a communal electricity supply
  • off the mains electricity or gas grid
  • in a care home or assisted living facility and you pay for some or all of your care
  • in a separate domestic home within a non-domestic property (such as a farmhouse or a flat above a shop)

The new scheme will allow eligible households, who have not received the automatic payment, to apply for a one-off payment of £400.

How to apply
