WARM HOME DISCOUNT DEADLINE APPROACHES ON 31st MARCH

GLASGOW CENTRAL MP URGES CONSTITUENTS TO GET IN TOUCH IF THEY ARE ENTITLED

Alison Thewliss, the Member of Parliament for Glasgow Central, has urged her constituents to get in touch with her office if they are entitled to the Warm Home Discount scheme.

The Warm Home Discount Scheme is a one-off £150 discount applied to the electricity bill of any constituent who is entitled to it.

If a constituent is eligible, their electricity supplier will apply the discount to their bill by 31 March 2024.

In Scotland, you are entitled to the Warm Home Discount scheme if you:

·         get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit

·         are on a low income in Scotland and meet your energy supplier’s criteria for the scheme

While the Warm Home Discount Scheme for winter 2023 to 2024 has closed, constituents who are entitled to this are still able to contact their supplier – in case of an issues.

Thewliss has spoken of the need for her constituents to get in touch with her office should they be having any difficulties.

Commenting, Alison Thewliss MP said:

“These discounts are often left unapplied for many of my constituents, so it is important that my constituents are aware of the deadline on the 31st March.

“This money can make a massive difference to the lives of so many. These times are so difficult for so many and having any form of additional money can help my constituents in this cost-of-living crisis.

“If any Glasgow Central constituents are in need of support regarding the Warm Home Discount scheme, please do not hesitate to contact my office via email: alison.thewliss.mp@parliament.uk, or via phone call: 0141 552 7117. 

“My team are always more than happy to help with any constituent issues and urge any constituent to contact my team.”
