If you have a prepayment meter for your gas or electricity, you live in B&NES and you're struggling to meet your fuel bills because of COVID-19, you could be eligible for fuel top-up vouchers to help you out.
These fuel top-up vouchers are available in denominations of £28 for a single person or £49 for a couple or family.
Each family or person can receive up to three vouchers - that's up to £147 of free gas and electricity.
This money is available through B&NES Citizens Advice who have funding for up to 1,000 local households.
- Fill in the application form here or
- Call the Compassionate Communities Hub on 0300 2470050.
The only two criteria for eligibility are:
- you're on a pre-payment meter of some kind (for example a key, card or web/app top-up) and
- you've been affected by COVID-19 in some way (for example you might have children home-schooling, so will be using more electricity than usual).
If you live outside B&NES, you may be able to access similar support through the Centre for Sustainable Energy.
