A campaign win on energy prices!

We’ve supported Age UK's campaigning for months for more financial support for pensioners, so this is a big campaign win for us all!

The Chancellor announced a big package of support which will come as a relief to many people, particularly those on means-tested benefits or living with a disability.

If you’re a pensioner, the minimum you’ll receive is £700 to help with your bills this year and if you’re a disabled pensioner on means-tested benefits, you’ll get up to £1,650. If you’re below State Pension age, you will still get at least £400 off your bills.

For now, the most important thing to do is check as soon as possible if you or someone you love could be entitled to additional benefits as it may entitle you to an extra payment if you apply in time.

  • has clear and relevant systems and procedures in place to manage the delivery of consistent, good quality information and advice. 
  • monitors its services and seeks feedback from clients and stakeholders.
