"Our energy company approved us for their Warm Homes Discount scheme and they’ve credited our account with £140. This is on top of the No Child Cold scheme which credited our account with £80.

It’s all a big relief.

However, I do wonder if they could do away with all these extra schemes (that you have to find out about and apply for separately) by simply increasing universal credit to a liveable amount. "
