Self-funding care home residents across mainland Britain can now apply for support with their energy bills.
The portal for care home residents opened on February 27.
Eligible residents include those who live in a care home or assisted living facility and who pay for some or all of your care (directly or through loss of pension or other benefits)
Applicants will need to show either:
- an invoice for your care home fees from the past three months
- an official document from the care home including the applicant’s name and address, a funding statement and the name and address of the care home
Residents whose care fees are all paid by the local council or NHS cannot apply.
