You may qualify for extra help from your energy supplier, or certain grants, benefits and support provided by the government or charities.
The support can range from help with heating your home, such as through winter fuel payments, to financial help to clear a debt or grants that can fund energy efficiency improvements to your home, like free boiler replacement or roof insulation. What you can access will depend on your personal circumstances.
