CAP’s response to BEIS Warm Home Discount consultation

calendar30 April 2018

CAP has responded to the consultation released by BEIS about the Warm Home Discount scheme, due to come into effect for winter 2018/19. CAP welcomed the increase in industry initiative from £30m to £40m, helping to increase the support available for people in fuel poverty. That being said, we did not agree with the continued reduction of provision for debt write-offs, which can so often provide people with a fresh start on their financial situation. We were also keen to highlight the current time scales for Warm Home Discount rebate, which can often be paid in spring/summer of the previous winter. This timing is often too late for many who may not have been able to afford to heat their homes over the winter. To read our full response, please click below.
