Warm Home Discount Scheme
Could you be eligible for the £140 Warm Home Discount Scheme?
The Warm Home Discount Scheme (WHDS) offers a one-off payment of £140 (inclusive of VAT) towards the energy bills for those who need it most.
The scheme is managed by energy suppliers. The money isn’t paid directly to you – it’s a one-off discount that’s credited to your energy account, prepayment card or key. The payment will be made no later than the end of March, providing you qualify for the payment.
Eligibility varies and will depend on your electricity supplier. The money is not paid to you – it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between October and March.
You could be eligible if your household is on a low income – approx. £300 per week (excluding disability benefits).
