Warm Home discount scheme applications are now starting to open. Check with your energy supplier to see if you are eligible to apply.  

The Warm Home Discount scheme (WHDS) offers a one-off payment of £140 (inclusive of VAT) towards the energy bills of households that need it most in England, Scotland and Wales.
