Winter Fuel Payment

What are Winter Fuel Payments?

Every year, those aged 66 and above are eligible to receive the Winter Fuel Payment directly from the government. The Winter Fuel Payment is an annual, tax-free payment of between £250 and £600 to help with the cost of heating bills during the winter months. They are not means-tested and so is not dependent on your financial situation.

Donate your Winter Fuel Payment

This winter, our figures show that 6.3 million UK households will be in fuel poverty. That’s 2 million more than October 2021, when the energy crisis began.

It’s meant more people will be facing devastating choices on how to spend overstretched incomes and fearing for their health and that of their families. Fuel poverty is at crisis levels, the worst we have seen in decades.  

At National Energy Action, we are working tirelessly to help as many people as we can, but we can’t do this alone. That’s why we are asking those who are able, to donate their Winter Fuel Payment to help those in desperate need of support. 

Your donation will mean we can be there to help vulnerable people up and down the country stay warm and safe this winter.

With your support we can provide a lifeline to those in need this winter.
