Warm Home Discount

The Warm Home Discount is an annual discount on your fuel bill to help those most vulnerable. Those who receive guaranteed pension credit get this automatically however, there are far more people out there who are eligible who need to apply to receive the discount.

Each fuel provider has different eligibility criteria so it is best to check with your provider to see if you are eligible. Applications open at different dates depending on the supplier but funds are allocated on a first come first served basis and when all funds are allocated applications will close so get in their quick.
