Energy Bill Rebate
£150 Council Tax Energy Rebate
Applications for the £150 energy rebate scheme have now closed and those who were eligible but did not apply before the end of August have received the rebate directly to their Council Tax account
Discretionary Energy Rebate Scheme
Redbridge Council have received discretionary grant funding to support households which are in the greatest need because of the rising cost of energy bills.
The Council has worked with its partners including the Benefits Service to identify households in need of support within the borough.
Those identified will receive a voucher which they can exchange for cash at the Post Office. The money should be used to pay their energy bills.
Vouchers will be posted out from 7 November and will need to be cashed by 30 November.
Bogus callers - fraud awareness
There have been reports that thieves are contacting people by door step visits and phone calls offering to assist them in making a claim for the energy rebate.
Do not pass on bank details or personal information to anyone claiming to be from the Redbridge Council Tax team. Redbridge will only offer help when requested by the charge payer.
