From Tuesday 22 September, there will be new coronavirus restrictions for Warrington.
Visit the coronavirus page for more information about these important new measures.
There are several winter housing grants, discounts and schemes aimed at helping people who may be over a certain age or on certain benefits.
The Warrington Warm Home Fund is run by Warrington Home Information and Improvement Agency (WHiA).
If you are over 60 or are housebound or vulnerable, WHiA may be able to provide you with some free services for a limited period.
To see if you can access some of these free services, call WHiA on 01925 246812 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the winter period, you may be able to get money off your electricity bill through the government’s Warm Home Discount Scheme. The discount won’t affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment.
If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be eligible for the government’s Cold Weather Payment.
Payments are made when your local temperature is either recorded as, or forecast to be, an average of zero degrees celsius (or below) over seven consecutive days.
If you are 65 or over, you could get between £100 and £300 tax-free to help pay your heating bills. This is the government’s Winter Fuel Payment.
