People living in Bradford could be eligible for grants to help with their gas and electric bills.

Bradford Council shared the advice as it raises awareness of cost of living support available to households.

British Gas (BG) has grants on offer for customers and non-customers to help with the rising costs of energy bills.

Energy bill grants

The Individual and Families Fund is expected to close at the end of March 2024 (unless it is expended sooner).

The fund is available to BG and non-BG customers with debt on a credit energy account or those on a pre-payment meter.

BG's Energy Support Fund is open to people who meet every part of the grant's criteria.

You must be a British Gas credit or pre-payment meter customer living in England, Scotland, or Wales.

Applicants can't apply if they've already received a grant from the fund within the last 12 months.

You must be seeking a grant to clear an outstanding debt on a current or open gas, electricity or dual fuel energy account in your name or be a member of that household.

The energy account must also relate to your main residence, cover electric and/or gas debt between £250 and £2,000, and you must be in or facing fuel poverty.
