  • DWP - Warm Home Discount Scheme

    Created: 02/12/2022

    A new online tool is available to make it easier for the public to check if they are eligible for the Warm Home Discount, which provides eligible low-income and vulnerable households with a £150 discount off their energy bills.  

    The online tool will guide customers through the eligibility criteria in England and Wales, asking questions about electricity supply, the benefits they receive and characteristics of their property. After answering the questions, customers will be told whether their property meets the high energy cost criteria. 

    All customers will receive a letter between November and mid-January confirming their eligibility and the payment will be made automatically through energy suppliers by March 2023.  

    The Government is also writing to customers who may be eligible, advising them to use the tool to check eligibility, as well as using the helpline for particularly complex cases.
