Helping the most vulnerable households

 

We are making sure the most vulnerable households get direct financial help through:

  • Warm Home Discount - participating energy suppliers help low-income and vulnerable households meet their energy costs
  • Winter Fuel Payment - annual payment of up to £300 for pensioner households
  • Cold Weather Payment - payment during periods of severely cold weather to pensioners who receive pension credit or people on income-related benefits who meet certain criteria

 

Case study:

My Gran, (Resident of Swindon)

Gran was struggling to keep warm at home and was always asking me to take her to Merryhill Shopping Centre. When I asked her why she said, “It was the only way she could be warm as she couldn't’t afford to put the heating on”.

I phoned the South Staffs Energy Advice Line and they helped me contact her energy supplier who said as she was on pension credit she could receive a Warm Homes Discount of £135. She now also receives a Winter Fuel Payment of £200 as she is over 60 and a Cold Weather Payment of £25 when it is really cold to help her keep warm.

 

 

 

Warm Home Discount

 

The warm home discount insures that all energy companies provide a discount to their most vulnerable customers. For more information, please visit the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) webpages.
