Do not miss out - apply for funding from the Energy Bills Support Scheme

Published on Friday, 26th May 2023

If you live in a park, mobile or care home or off the electricity grid in Nuneaton and Bedworth, you do not have long to apply for funding from the Energy Bills Support Scheme.

The deadline for energy funding applications is Wednesday, 31 May. View further advice about cost-of-living support 

Households without a direct relationship to an electricity supplier, such as those living in park homes and care homes, can now apply via a secure online portal to receive the support.

This is a one-off, non-repayable lump sum under the alternative funding route of the government’s Energy Bills Support Scheme (EBSS AF).

For those without online access, a dedicated customer helpline is available to assist eligible customers at 0808 175 3287.

Cllr Sam Croft, Portfolio Holder at Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council for Finance and Corporate, said:

“Winter may be over but inflation is still affecting the cost of living for families across the community. 

“So I'd encourage all residents who are eligible, and who still haven't received a payment under the EBSS, to apply before the deadline.

“We want to make sure that as many people as possible benefit from this help while it's still available."
