Help with energy bills

£400 will be taken off your energy bill automatically from October 2022.

This does not need to be paid back and requires no action.

This is a government scheme. South Tyneside Council is not responsible for administering this support.

Applications for the £150 Council Tax energy rebate have now closed.
