Elderly Fuel Allowance – Glasgow City Council
Posted on 26th June, 2017
The city is the only one in the UK to offer an annual affordable warmth dividend to all vulnerable elderly people over the age of 80 – £100 every winter since the new Administration was elected in 2011. The Council also delivers a major domestic energy efficiency programme, levering in national and local funding sources to provide up to £500 a year in savings for fuel-poor residents. Now Glasgow is establishing an Energy Services Company for the city – a radical move to protect our people from market failure in the energy system by drawing on our history of municipal activism.
