The Priority Services Register is a free service provided by energy suppliers and network operators to help people who may need additional support. If you or someone you live with has a sight condition, you could be eligible. You may also qualify for a winter fuel payment, cold weather payment or the warm home scheme, which are all offered by the UK government.
Winter Fuel Payment - If you have reached the qualifying age you may get help with keeping warm in winter. This can be between £100 and £300 depending on your situation.
Cold Weather Payments - one-off payment worth £25 is paid automatically in severe weather conditions. This is when the temperature goes below zero for seven days in a row (between 1 November - 31 March).
Warm Home Discount - A new online tool is available to make it easier for you to check if you are eligible for the Warm Home Discount, which provides eligible low-income and vulnerable households with a £150 discount off energy bills.
