Eligible households can claim a one-off £200 payment from their local authority to provide support towards paying their fuel costs. 

This payment is in addition to the Energy Bill rebate being offered by the UK Government and the Winter Fuel Payment normally paid to pensioners.  The payment will be available to all eligible households (one payment per household) regardless of how they pay for their fuel, whether that is, for example, on a pre-payment meter, by direct debit or by paying a bill quarterly and can be claimed regardless of whether they are using on or off-grid fuel.

The scheme will be open to households where an applicant, or their partner is in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits at any time between 1 September 2022 and 31 January 2023. 

For full details of the Winter Fuel Payment Scheme, along with other support available, please visit the Flintshire County Council website.
