Covid Winter Grant Scheme

Feb 9, 2021 | Consumer, Debt and Money, Family, Health

If you are struggling with paying for your fuel costs then please contact us.

Citizens Advice are thrilled to be working on behalf of Devon County Council to help Devon residents in need by providing vouchers for fuel costs, top up smart meters online or make payments to online fuel accounts.

The Department of Work & Pensions have provided a fund to County Councils and Unitary Authorities across England under the Scheme ‘COVID Winter Grant Scheme’. The aim is to support vulnerable households with the cost of fuel or food due to the continuing hardships caused by Covid-19.

It will be prioritised for those for whom a payment will help mitigate the risk of self-disconnection. It can include working families, single-household families, older people – anyone who is in need of fuel support so long as they are eligible.

We will be able to provide vouchers, top up smart meters online or make payments to online fuel accounts.

In addition to this, we can look at other ways we can help!
