Low income households in Lichfield and Burntwood urged to apply for Warmer Homes Discount

People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to apply for a scheme that offers a cut-price energy bill for low income households.

The Warm Homes Discount is offered by energy suppliers and operates on a first come, first served basis.

Locals can contact Lichfield District Council’s Warmer Homes, Greener District advice line on 0800 677 1543 for help to apply.

The discount is available to people on a low income, and who receive certain means-tested benefits.

Councillor Ashley Yeates, Cabinet member for regulatory services, housing and wellbeing, said: “With many suppliers announcing price rises over the summer, it’s more important than ever that eligible households claim their discount to help with their heating bills over the winter.

“Our Warmer Homes, Greener District advisors can discuss qualifying criteria and make applications on behalf of our qualifying residents over the phone. If you think you are eligible, contact Warmer, Homes Greener District advice line without delay.”

“Once suppliers reach their target number of applications, they often close schemes abruptly. It really does pay off to apply as soon as you can.”

    It only applies if your energy supplier is part of the scheme. So sadly not available for everyone.
