New £400 energy grants
There is an £400 non-repayable energy bill discount available to households through the Energy Bills Support Scheme. For most households this discount is applied automatically by your energy provider in six instalments between October 2022 and March 2023.
From 27 February 2023, an alternative scheme has been set up for households who receive their electricity in a different way.
This will be a one-off non-repayable payment of £400 per household. Apply following advice on our energy bill support pages.
Our Local Welfare Provision is a scheme run by us to help people who are in a crisis or emergency situation and where additional assistance would help prevent the crisis or emergency from escalating.
