Grants - housing and homes

Warm Home Discount Scheme

The warm home discount scheme was brought in this year to replace the old social tariffs for people most at risk of fuel poverty over the winter months. It provides eligible customers with a one-off £120 payment from their electricity supplier that will be credited onto their electricity account or pre-payment meter.
