Discretionary energy rebate scheme

The discretionary energy rebate scheme has closed

The government provided discretionary funding to local authorities to support households suffering financial hardship because of the rising cost in living.

The purpose of the discretionary scheme was to:

  • support those households not eligible for the main Council Tax Energy Bill Rebate scheme in bands E to H, and
  • provide additional support to our most vulnerable households in bands A to D

All payments have now been made to those households eligible for a discretionary payment. The discretionary energy bill rebate scheme is now closed.
