When we are cold, we feel miserable and our mental and physical health can suffer. Here are some tips for keeping your house and yourself warm during the winter. There is also advice on getting help with heating bills.
If you are struggling to pay your energy bills then you must make sure you are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to. These include:-
If you are on a State Pension this is an annual payment to help with fuel bills. Make sure you are registered to receive it.
If the thermometer reaches at or below 0 degrees for a period of time, and you’re receiving certain benefits, you may be eligible to receive £25 a week for each 7 day period of cold weather.
This is a discount on your electricity bill. You may be able to get it if you get Pension Credit or are on a low income.
