Cost of living help

  • Fuel poverty hardship fund

    Updated at 12.15pm on Monday 5 December 2022

    We have agreed a £1 million hardship fund to help Belfast residents and households in fuel poverty.

    Partner organisations will administer the funds on our behalf. Eligible households will receive a one-off voucher of up to £100 to cover the cost of:

    • oil
    • gas 
    • electricity, or
    • a mixture of these.

    Be assured, we are finalising details of eligibility criteria and how the funding will be delivered as quickly as possible. Some households may get their voucher before Christmas.

    We'll update this page with more information, when details become available.

    We’ll also share updates on our social media channels. You can follow us on Twitter (link opens in new window) and Facebook (link opens in new window).
