Energy Bills Support Scheme – Deadline Coming Up

If you haven’t automatically received the £400 discount on your energy bills, you’ll need to apply for it. But be quick, don’t miss the deadline!

The Energy Bills Support Scheme gave a £400 grant to households to help pay for energy bills during winter 2022/23. Most households received this support automatically from their energy supplier. But some households need to apply for it. This could be you if, for example:

• you live in sheltered housing, in a park home, in a care home, or off the electricity grid
• you pay for energy through a landlord, housing manager or site owner.

The deadline to claim this money is 31st May 2023.
