The Scottish Government has launched a new fund to support energy customers who are suffering financial hardship due to COVID-19. Administered by Advice Direct Scotland, the Home Heating Support Fund has been established because no household should live in fuel poverty or ration fuel to get by.
Organisations who provide energy advice and/or approved money advice can apply on behalf of the individuals they support.
The fund is available until 31 March 2021 with payments beginning on 22 February 2021.
