An important update on the Warm Home Discount

An important update on the Warm Home Discount

Regardless of who your energy supplier is, make sure you’re aware of these updates regarding the £150 Warm Home Discount (and please let others know, too):

Those of you who are with Utilita might already know that they’d usually open applications for the Warm Home Discount around this time of the year (early August), however..

..government changes introduced this year (in England and Wales) mean that if you’re eligible** for the Warm Home Discount, you don’t need to apply for it anymore- regardless of your supplier (other suppliers would usually open their Warm Home Discount applications later in the year).

A discount of £150 will automatically be deducted from your energy bill(s) between October and March (some suppliers will split your total deduction across more than one bill).

**Not sure if you’re eligible? Visit the government’s website to see the full criteria and details on how it works: www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme.

And don’t forget- if you need:

  • tips to reduce energy costs (while keeping things warm during the colder months),
  • advice on the best tariffs,
  • help to apply for Winter Fuel Payments,
  • support with energy disputes,
  • and- where possible- more tailored support based on your circumstances..

Contact our Energy Advisor, Tom (who works for our social enterprise subsidiary, Starts with you) using keepwarmforless@boltonathome.org.uk or 07782 522498. He’ll be more than happy to help.
