The Warm Home Discount is a government scheme funded by the larger energy suppliers, aimed at tackling fuel poverty in Great Britain. Providing a one-off rebate of £140 towards energy bills, it is designed to help lower income and vulnerable households with their energy costs during the winter months. The ‘Core’ Group element currently applies to all older people who receive the Guarantee Credit part of the Government’s Pension Credit benefit. Energy suppliers have discretion to apply criteria for the ‘Broader’ group rebate element of the scheme.
Auriga assesses individual applications for energy companies for the Broader Group element, ensuring that they meet criteria before the rebate is applied to their energy account.
