The Government announcement about additional funding for those who missed out on the Energy Bills Support Scheme (EBSS), means that you could apply for support.
People who don’t have a direct relationship with an energy supplier, including care home residents, those living in park homes and those pay for energy through a landlord, housing manager or site owner, will receive a £400 discount on their fuel bills through the Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding (EBSS Alternative Funding).
Applications can be made on the government online portal, see below link:
Apply for energy bill support if you do not get it automatically - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
If you cannot apply online or need help with your application, contact the helpline team on 0808 175 3287.
Please be reminded that you will never be asked to apply for EBSS Alternative Funding by email or text and will never be sent a link to apply.
