With energy prices higher than they have been for a long time and due to rise sharply again in the Autumn the Government has announced the following financial assistance for householders:-
Every household in the UK will get an energy bill discount of £400 this October (The £400 payment replaces a plan to give everyone in England, Scotland and Wales £200 off bills from October which would have been repaid over five years)
The poorest households will also get a payment of £650 to help - in two lump sums - one in July, the other this autumn.
There will be separate one-off payments of £300 to pensioner households and £150 to individuals receiving disability benefits
