Families with disabled children who get:
certain means-tested benefits,or child tax credit,and receive a disabled child’s premium in their award
are now included in the ‘broader category’ of people who can apply for help under the Warm Homes Discount scheme. (This is a win from our Counting the Costs campaign!)
The disabled child’s premium is an extra amount paid if a child counts as disabled, and should be listed on the award notice.
We are urging families to contact their energy supplier as soon as possible to apply under the broader scheme as awards are given on a first-come-first-served basis.
