Stay Well Heating Grants

Grants up to £300 for vulnerable individuals/families living in Cambridgeshire (not including Peterborough) facing fuel poverty to contribute towards future heating costs. For those that are homeless, other costs of keeping warm (such as sleeping bags) will be considered.

Individuals/families must be referred by an organisation (voluntary sector or local authority) that has assessed the circumstances and can verify that the individual/family are in extreme crisis and in need of immediate assistance.

Repeat /multiple requests for one family or individual  are not anticipated as it is expected that the referring agent is doing all they can to help the person move on from the crisis point.

Where there is historic debt owed to their energy supplier, the organisation helping the individual will need to seek support from a debt advice agency or other resource. The Stay Well Grant will not be paid to offset historic debt.

If the beneficiary pays by direct debit, the grant will be paid directly to the energy supplier. If the beneficiary has a prepayment meter or purchases oil or gas bottles, the grant will be paid to the referring organisation for them to buy a prepayment token or place an order.
