    An MP has called for the EBSS Alternative Funding Scheme to be re-opened as, “It had missed the most vulnerable”.

    This is according to the BBC News site as linked below…

    Extra energy bill scheme was 'staggering failure', says MP https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-66203677

    Hopefully this will give the estimated 750,000 households who missed out a chance to get the £400 the rest of us received. This group includes people who live off-grid, in park homes and narrow boats, travellers, some tenants and people on heat networks.

    I know this is an old thread and the Energy Bill Support Scheme has now ended and Alternative Fuel Payments were paid out last year for those with alternative fuels.

    If however you find you are struggling please don't struggle alone, there is support available. You can find out more about the support we can offer in our Affordability & Vulnerability section of the forum 😊
