The Home Heating Support Fund is a Scottish Government scheme for households struggling with energy bills because of a growing cost-of-living crisis. The scheme, which is administered by the national advice service Advice Direct Scotland, is to prevent households from falling into fuel poverty and help those ‘rationing’ their energy use.
The fund is open until 31 March 2022 – to apply, call SCARF on 0808 129 0888 and speak to the Angus HEAT team.
If your household is ‘off-supply’, you can’t apply, and you should seek immediate help from your energy supplier or organisations which can refer you to the Fuel Bank Foundation.
Even if your household is not eligible, SCARF can give you free advice on energy and debt issues.
