Increase the Warm Home Discount Scheme payment to ensure every household in the UK can afford to heat their homes this winter.

Why is this important?

Households across the country are facing higher energy bills. What’s worse, low-income households are being hit hardest.

After almost a decade, where energy prices have increased massively, the Government's Warm Home Discount Scheme - designed to help low-income households keep warm - has not increased.

Now experts, like Martin Lewis, are calling on the Government to increase the scheme’s one-off payment to ensure that no household has to choose between food or keeping warm this winter.
