Kent Money Advice Hub - Debt Advice Scheme
We are delighted to inform you that Kent County Council is currently working with Citizens Advice North and West Kent to support residents on low incomes who are taking positive steps to address their debts.
Residents could be eligible for additional support towards their household energy bill and receive up to £500 (subject to eligibility criteria).
To be eligible for this scheme, residents must at a minimum meet the following qualifying criteria:
- Be aged 16 or over.
- Be a Kent resident, permanently living within one of the 12 local authorities covered by Kent County Council (this excludes Medway, Bromley, and Bexley)
- Be responsible for paying the household energy bill (one award per household). If a partner is awarded an energy card, but is not the main energy account holder, they can still use the card against the household energy costs.
- Be accessing support through the ‘Kent Money Advice Hub’.
Other eligibility criteria will apply and be assessed through the debt advice process.
Funding is limited so please, if you feel you meet the above criteria contact the Kent Money Advice Hub by clicking on the link below.
This support is funded by the UK Governments Household Support Fund – the scheme will close once all funds are spent or before the 31 March 2024.
