Applications for the Winter Fuel Support Scheme have now closed. All payments should have been made by local authorities by 30 April 2022. If you believe you are due a payment under the scheme, please contact your local authority.

Find your local authority.

If you are still experiencing financial hardship, you may be able to make a claim to the Discretionary Assistance Fund (DAF).
