Cost of Living Support

Help and support

With the increasing energy prices and the effect on the cost of living, the Northern Warwickshire Financial Inclusion Partnership (NWFIP) is working to provide information, advice and details of services that are available to help and support residents.

Our aim is to offer advice on any new schemes and initiatives that could benefit you as well as providing support with energy, water use and bills. We encourage you to seek help as soon as possible to avoid getting into debt.

If you are struggling with benefits, budgeting, bills and debt then you can get help and support from one of our partners. Please find here a list of local and national organisations that will be able to give you the information, advice and support that you need. 

If you need help setting up your bills and planning your budget you can use the tenancy-ready guide.

The free benefits calculator can be used to check to see if you are entitled to financial support.

Updates on the Council's energy rebate scheme are available here.

You can also visit the Help for Households webpage for further cost of living support.

We are currently working on a Positive Energy newsletter will be available to download from this page soon, please also follow the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for regular updates on services.

On Monday, 14 November 2022 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy announced the reopening of the Warm Home Discount Scheme which will provide a discount of £150 off electricity bills for three million low-income households this winter. Most households will receive the discount automatically. The government has launched a new online tool, to make it easier for the public to check eligibility for the discount.

We welcome any feedback to make this webpage work better for you. If you have any great ideas or suggestions, then we would love to hear them.

Email your suggestions to financial.inclusion@nuneatonandbedworth.gov.uk.
