Update 1st May 2021 – Fuel bills during Covid
With many of us staying home during Covid, fuel bills have gone up. Citizens Advice Wirral can help if you are struggling to pay.
Up to 20 June 2021 Citizens Advice can apply, on your behalf, for a Fuel Grant from Wirral Borough Council to help reduce or clear your gas or electricity debt, if the debt is due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
Citizens Advice can also help with benefit problems and other debts. You can call Citizens Advice Wirral direct on 08082 78 78 48.
Warm Home Discount Scheme
Can we please remind our families that £140 can be claimed off your electricity bill.
You could get £140 off your electricity bill for winter 2021 to 2022 under the Warm Home Discount Scheme. The scheme opens on 18 October 2021.
The money is not paid to you – it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between October and March.
You may be able to get the discount on your gas bill instead if your supplier provides you with both gas and electricity. Contact your supplier to find out.
