Preston Liberal Democrats want to highlight that many Preston residents will be eligible to claim £140 towards the cost of heating their home this winter.
The Warm Home Discount scheme can see £140 being subtracted from your energy bills, meaning you've not got to worry about the costs of heating your home this winter.
If you claim any of the following benefits you may be eligible to apply:
- Working Tax Credit
- Child Tax Credit
- Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
- Personal Independence Payment
- Universal Credit
We can't guarantee that you'll be eligible for the scheme, but if you claim one of the above benefits, log on to the website of your energy company and apply for the scheme. All of the Big Six take part in the scheme.
Parliamentary Spokesperson Neil Darby said,
"This is an amazing initiative that has the potential to make real difference to peoples' lives.
"It's important we publicise this because this scheme could make the difference between eating and going hungry for low income families.
"I commend energy companies for their support in helping society's vulnerable."
