Not sure if this has been posted before,
I have just got myself onto the Welsh Water Assist programme which entitles people to have Annual Water bills capped to £228 a year.
This is saving as at least £150 a year.
Here is the main details as you have to qualify, I am greatful to say this programme also seems to help working families like us.
Are you eligible?
To see if you qualify for the tariff you can refer to our easy to follow flowchart. You may be eligible to apply if any member of your household receives any one of the following benefits/tax credits:
Income-based job seekers allowance
Council tax benefit (not sole occupancy or disabled relief)
Income related employment & support allowance
Child tax credit (other than family element)
Working tax credit.
In addition either:
Receive child benefit for three or more children under 19 living at the same address and still in full-time education.
You or any members of your household have one of the following medical conditions, which require significant extra water use:
Qualifying Medical Conditions
Desquamation (flaky skin disease)
Renal failure requiring home dialysis (except LA contribution)
Weeping skin disease (eczema, psoriasis, varicose ulceration)
Any other condition which requires significant water use.
Other medical conditions can be accepted if the condition uses significant amounts of water and is supported by a signed certificate issued by a Doctor or registered practitioner.
You do not qualify for the scheme if:
You have a swimming pool with a capacity of over 10,000 litres
You water your garden with a non-handheld appliance, such as a sprinkler or domestic irrigation system.
Just go to the site and call them up for them to post out an application pack if you qualify.
