Could you do with some help with energy and water bills?


We’ve got help available through Cadent Foundation’s Winter Support Fund.

To qualify for energy payments, you need to have a household income of below £31,000 as well as a vulnerability (such as an over 65 in the household or under 5s; living with a disability or health condition; etc). The vulnerability criteria are quite broad so please phone if you think you might qualify.

In terms of evidence required, we’d need to see a copy/screenshot or photo of a recent energy bill showing your name, address and account number. For those with a traditional pre-payment meter, we’d need to see a photo of the key or card. You could benefit by up to £70 paid to your energy account (you can choose whether that is electricity or gas). We can also help with a payment for oil/LPG/solid fuel.
