If you’re below state pension age and receive Disability Living Allowance (either for yourself or a child) or Personal Independence Payments, you could qualify for our new warm home payment for disabled people. You will be able to apply for £150 to help with your energy costs. The scheme is not yet open for applications, but you can leave your email address to be notified when it opens.
We’re also providing funding for local organisations that are already supporting people with the cost of living, including foodbanks and community pantries, to help their work. Local services are listed at our Help with Food page.
We’re also using household support funding to give more people access to home energy advice visits. To find out how to save energy and money, visit Switched on Portsmouth or call the freephone helpline on 0800 260 5907.
The next HAF Fun Pompey programme will run from 16 to 23 December. There is a fantastic range of activities and events including some for all the family.
