To be eligible for the grant the person must have a pre-payment meter installed at the property and be willing to share their contact details with Citizens Advice Halton.

How to make a referral

To make a referral you will need to visit Citizens Advice Halton’s website (www.haltoncab.org.uk) and click on “referral”, then enter your contact details and the clients contact details (e.g. name, address and phone number).  Please make sure that you have the person’s permission to share their contact details before completing the form.  The team from Citizens Advice Halton will then contact the person to gather some further basic information, and verify that they meet the qualifying criteria.  If successful, the person will then receive, via text message, a grant voucher code for £49 from the Fuel Bank Foundation.

Funding for Essential White Goods & Food

The CAB also have an allocation for the provision of essential white goods e.g. cookers, fridges, washing machines, microwaves and food vouchers.
