Help So Far
Good news from Anne – so far we have been able to help around 20 tenants receive a £50 grant towards their heating costs thanks to funding from Citizens Advice Scotland from their Fuel Poverty Fund. We’ve also helped out a further 4 tenants who have received £252 from the Scottish Winter fuel fund, with more help for tenants in the pipeline.
There will be a new grant fund starting in March and there’s also the £150 discount for people in Council Tax Bands A-D, but we don’t have any details on these schemes yet, or how they will be applied. We’ll update you when we know more.
There are also other sources for help available for tenants struggling with their fuel costs, and new ones are showing up all the time. To chat to Anne about your options, please use the 'Energy Advice' button in My Home, click the link below, or call your Housing Officer on 01620 825032.
