There are a number of grants available to help people with their finances, including the warm home discount. However, you don’t have to be in financial difficulty to benefit from a grant, as schemes are also available in areas such as making green home improvements. Some people are struggling to afford to pay their essential bills, and often it’s because they are not aware of the support available.
