Energy schemes: Useful resources

You can use the Gov.UK website's energy grants finder tool to see what might be available to you, depending on where you live and your circumstances.

The energy regulator Ofgem's website has information and support for consumers.

Citizens Advice has information to help you get the best energy deals, apply for energy-related grants and discounts, make energy efficient improvements and much more. Make sure you look at the information relevant to the country of the UK you live in:

If you live in Northern Ireland, see the NI Direct website

Citizens Advice Consumer Service can advise you on all matters relating to energy supply, including debt advice and access to cheaper deals. If you live in Northern Ireland, the service is Consumerline.

The Energy Saving Trust website has detailed information on how to save energy at home.  If you live in Scotland, see the Energy Saving Trust Scotland website.

The Health Through Warmth scheme (HTW) was set up in 2000, working together with National Energy Action (NEA), the national fuel poverty charity, and the NHS. HTW aims to improve levels of warmth, comfort and quality of life for vulnerable people who have cold-related illnesses and need help with the installation of heating and insulation measures or repairs to existing systems or appliances which they can’t afford themselves. HTW is available across England and Wales to vulnerable people who meet our eligibility criteria.

National Energy Action is a national charity which aims to eradicate fuel poverty and campaigns for greater investment in energy efficiency to help those who are poor and vulnerable.
