Grants and support for energy and water bills

What support can I get?

There are things you can do if you owe money or are struggling to pay your energy bills:

  • Avoid ignoring bills or letters about money you owe
  • Speak to the organisations you owe money to about a payment plan - they might let you pay smaller amounts, take a break from payments or give you more time to pay
  • Each organisation is different, so it’s important to check what help you may be entitled to

You may also like to check if you are eligible for grants and schemes:

The government will give every household £400 off their electricity bill via the Energy Bills Support Scheme. You do not need to do anything to get the money and you will not have to pay it back. You will get the £400 in instalments, starting from October 2022.
