Welsh Water Tariffs
If you are on a low income, have a large family or have disabilities or health conditions that mean you use more water, you may qualify for a reduced water bill. We can check if you qualify and help you apply.
If you’re in severe debt with Welsh Water, we can even help you make an application to help reduce what you owe.
Warm Home Discount
Utility Companies offer this scheme if you are on a low income which takes a fixed amount off your electric or gas bill. These schemes usually open in September each year. We can check if you are eligible and help you apply.
If you are having trouble heating your home, then the Welsh Government’s NEST scheme can help. They will look at the energy efficiency in your home and will look at ways of improving it. They offer everything from advice to offering insulation or a new boiler depending on your circumstances.
DAF (Discretionary Assistance Fund)
If you are in need of household goods or emergency cash, we can help you apply for help from the Discretionary Assistance Fund. This is a Welsh Government project with decisions usually made within 24 hours for Cash or two weeks for goods and household items.
White Good Schemes
Some utility companies and charitable organisations have schemes which offer white goods to those who are on benefits or are on low income. We can help you look for schemes to help you.
You need a TV Licence to watch or record programmes on a TV, computer or other device. We can help you budget for this and set up a payment plan.
