How to get help with the cost of living in the Rochford District

May 15, 2022 10:41 AM

As the cost of living crisis continues to go unaided by the government here are some (limited) schemes that may be able to help ease the burden

If you're an Essex homeowner with a household income below £30,000, you may be eligible for up to £10,000 of work to make energy efficient improvements to your home.

This could include fitting loft insulation, cavity or solid wall insulation or energy efficient heating (does not include gas or oil). The funding covers the entire cost of the improvements, up to £10,000.

The Government announced in February that an Energy Bill Rebate will be provided to households in England from April 2022 to help protect residents from rising energy costs. This includes a one-off payment of £150 to most households in Council Tax bands A-D. More information here
