£150 core scheme for households in Band A to D

Applications for this scheme have now closed. 

To ensure no household misses out, we will send out a revised bill for 2022/23 to:

  • any eligible households that did not apply
  • any household we have been unable to verify the bank details for

If this means your bill is in credit you can apply for a refund.

Discretionary fund

We have £375,750 to provide support to other energy bill payers not eligible under the terms of the core scheme.

We gave this to:

  1. Care experienced young people aged 17 to 25. Each person who applied received £100
  2. People living in houses in multiple occupations. Each person who applied received £100

Applications are now closed. The deadline for applications was 23:59pm on Sunday 30 October 2022.

The discretionary fund will also support:

  1. Households eligible for Council Tax Support and are of working age living in Band E properties and above. £150 per household.
  2. We will distribute the remaining allocation to households in Band E and F. £47.50 per household.

If you pay by direct debit and we have successfully taken a payment, the rebate will be refunded by BACS directly to your bank account. If you are not a direct debit payer (this includes standing order) you will receive a credit on your Council Tax bill. This will reduce the required ongoing payments.
