Warm Home Discount Scheme 2017/2018

118
Expires on 31/03/2018Found 5th Nov
**Please check if you are eligible for this scheme**

You could get £140 off your electricity bill for winter 2017 to 2018 under the Warm Home Discount Scheme.

The money isn’t paid to you - it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill, between September and March.

You may be able to get the discount on your gas bill instead if your supplier provides you with both gas and electricity. Contact your supplier to find out.

A good reminder for eligible people.

A good reminder too that if your just about managing you get no help at all.

I wonder if Mps are eligible, they'll need the heating on now they're not allowed to cuddle teenage girls

Another excellent use of my tax money.


It's not your tax money, you lose any say in what it is spent on the second the polls close every 5 years. I don't agree with bombing innocent civilians to steal oil but I also have no say, that's just how it works.

Yep, all those millionaire scientists you see eh. Luckily we've got such altruistic oil oligarchs looking out for our interests and banding together to stop the evil scientists.

No point signing up for this unless you sign up with a supplier before March but after new year.
Reason being is all deals expire after a year and you'll then go on a scrappy tariff unless you want another year by which time there won't be any decent offers and you won' get the discount.

No energy provider pays this out before late feb/March for applications from previous year.

It's just a big scam at tax payers expense in all honesty.

Some information which may help to get this "discount".

1. Are you with a supplier which has joint the scheme? - Look here. (Usually, companies who offer the lowest tarriffs do not subscribe to the scheme).

2. Have you been with your current electricity supplier on 6 June 2017? - If NO, your not eligible.

I agree with robo 989, this is one of those government "pretent" schemes.

You really think they pay for anything?

I'm sure they put everything on expenses .. I mean they need to keep warm or have baths. Without them they'd be unable to represent their constituents....

This thread has been done a couple of times already this season.... but still voting hot because i think it is important that people keep seeing it... old threads get lost after a while and people need this information!

Thankyou for the reminder! As a disabled person I think we still qualify. I thought I'd missed the deadline for the next one, so huge thanks and heat from me!

Garbage! Don't listen to this comment as mines payed every November and I apply in October.

Had ours paid in from Eon a couple of weeks ago now, switched to them in August.

The June date is for CORE Group .

You're welcome from all those who subsidise you



and how exactly do you manage that? you think your bills would go down if this worth while scheme was scrapped?

Graham197935 m ago

You're welcome from all those who subsidise you

I've payed taxs for nearly 26 years no one subsidises me thanks.

Is there any help for those who work and live on the minimum wage?

This is not a scam at all. Eon pay out quicker on prepayment meters. Usually before Christmas, only certain suppliers offer the scheme and if your disabled it helps. It’s comes off your winter bill at the end of March. But it helps knowing that if u want to keep your heating on you have £140 to come off your bill. Which some vulnerable people rely on

Most scientists don't think climate change is a myth, but a tory government won't spend on the NHS anyway.

I work in education, these people have no agenda and make nothing from their stance yet all think climate change is real. I am not a scientist although I have a scientific degree, and I can understand why they think this. I'm intrigued what evidence you possess which proves them wrong?

In short, there is no conclusive proof towards global warming, just theories. And I'm sure you use petrol/deisel in your car.

Sse have alread paid this to eligible people.

If only someone with power & immense wealth, for eg The Queen had a stash of tens of millions that could be used for the weak/vulnerable in society.

If only...

My parents just changed energy suppliers for gas and electric in September. Does this mean they won't qualify this year?
