Help with rising energy bills
If you’re struggling to heat your home or are worried about not being able to pay your essential household bills, contact us – we’re here to help.
The government has announced measures to help people who may struggle to pay their increased energy bills. This will include a discount of £150 for those who pay council tax in homes rated Band A to Band D, plus alternative support for those on lower incomes or those who do not pay council tax.
You can check your council tax band on the government website or by looking through older bills.
If you qualify, you don’t have to apply for the £150 discount. Your local authority will automatically apply it on 1 April 2022.
You can find more information on what support is available if you’re struggling to pay your bills in our Help and Advice section.
