Surviving Winter Grant
You could be entitled to £100's off your winter fuel bills.
You may be eligible for a Surviving Winter Grant towards your bills if you are on a lower income and worry about the cost of heating. The criteria for households to receive a grant remain the same as previous years:
- Age 60+ and in fuel poverty and evidence has been seen to confirm this. OR
- Age 60+: There are other evidenced circumstances suggesting the applicant is vulnerable to cold weather such as low income, eg. on means-tested benefits or solely dependent on state pension, and would benefit from financial support to maintain an adequate standard of warmth. OR
- Age 50 - 59 and meets one of the above criteria AND has significant health conditions, is on the highest level of benefits and has little current chance of improving life circumstances.
Contact Age UK Wiltshire on 0800 0385722 if you are of pensionable age Or Warm and Safe Winter 0808 1962424 if you are working age.
For these grants a ‘fuel poor household’ is defined as one which needs to spend more than 10% of its income on all fuel to heat its home to 21°c in the living room and 18°c in other occupied rooms. Please remember to also disregard DLA/PIP/AA as “income” for this purpose.
About The Village
Stourton with Gasper, normally referred to simply as Stourton, is a rural parish in Wiltshire. It is on the borders of both Dorset and Somerset; in fact used to be in Somerset. The whole parish was part of the Stourhead Estate. The National Trust own part of the estate, including the Palladian mansion and the world famous landscape gardens.
Stourhead is appreciated by hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. However Stourton is not a museum, but a real community where we live and work.
