Funds have been allocated to support the most vulnerable households in Hampshire this winter with their fuel costs. Families with children on low incomes, single householders on fixed incomes and youth leaving care will be able to access direct financial support to pay gas, water and/or electricity bills.
This will be available from the local Citizens Advice Service in each locality alongside broader support and advice.
What is on offer?
Direct financial support to pay gas, water and/or electricity bills, potentially including arrears. The value of any individual funding award will be dependent upon individual circumstances.
Who is eligible?
Any household, with or without children for whom fuel bills account for a significant proportion of income. Eligibility will depend upon individual circumstances which will be assessed by Citizen’s Advice.
