THE DEADLINE to claim help with rising costs of energy bills is looming.
Solihull Council is calling on residents to make sure they have received the funds available to them under the Government’s Energy Bills Support Scheme (EBSS).
This includes people who don’t have direct contact with energy providers and didn’t receive the discount automatically, such as those in a care home or assisted living facility who pay for some or all of their care, on a boat on a permanent residential mooring or in a separate domestic home within a non-domestic property (such as a farmhouse or a flat above a shop).
Residents may also be eligible for a £200 alternative fuels payment if their household is not connected to the mains gas grid or they use alternative fuels as your main form of heating, such as tank or bottled gas, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), oil, wood, or solid fuel.
To check eligibility and find out more, visit the government website, or call 0808 175 3287 for additional support.
The deadline for applications is May 31.
