Worried about paying your winter fuel bill?

Winter fuel grants are available again for UNISON members who are having difficulty meeting their heating bills.

The grants, which are available from the union’s independent welfare charity, ‘There for You’, are particularly timely after recent price rises by all the major energy companies. They consist of a one-off payment of up to £40.

The process will be very similar to previous years. An amount of money has been ring-fenced to support this initiative. This is a fixed sum and we are unable to make further grants once it is allocated.

Members who wish to apply for a grant can . To apply you must complete a fuel grant application form and send it in as instructed. Forms must be received by Friday 6 February 2015.
