Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding
Created: 21/03/2023, Updated: 22/03/2023 News/Events Category: General News
Eligible households in Great Britain can apply for £400 of support under the Government’s Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding (EBSS AF).
The scheme is aimed at those without a direct relationship to an energy supplier, including self-funded care home residents and people living in park homes, as well as households who get their energy through a commercial contract or who are off grid.
More information is available at the UK Government website and those who need additional support, or do not have internet access, can call a dedicated helpline on 0808 175 3287.
Payments will be made by Local Authorities, who may also request additional information – but only once an application has been made via the secure portal or helpline.
