  • Child Winter Heating Assistance eligibility extended

    Created: 21/10/2021

    Eligibility for Child Winter Heating Assistance has been extended to young people aged 16 to 18 in receipt of the enhanced daily living component of the Department for Work and Pensions Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

    People do not need to apply, as the £202 payment will be made automatically by Social Security Scotland. Families will receive a letter of confirmation to coincide with the payment being made.

    To qualify for Child Winter Heating Assistance, people need to be aged 18 or under, and receive the highest rate care component of Disability Living Allowance for children, receive the highest rate care component of Child Disability Payment, or be in receipt of the enhanced daily living component of PIP on at least one day between 20 September 2021 to 26 September 2021

    This year’s Child Winter Heating Assistance payments will start from the end of November and payments will be made in batches over the winter months.
