Front-line staff Referrals

Thanks for taking the time to refer your clients who need financial support as a result of COVID-19.

Due to extremely high demand, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all new applications for COVID winter grant scheme utility payments until further notice.

If you feel that your client would benefit from the other support measures we provide (for example, help with heating or home insulation) then please do refer them through our staff referral form for the Healthy Housing Service by following this link.

We will provide an update through Council communication channels when and if the COVID winter grant utility payments scheme re-opens for applications.

Many thanks for all of your referrals to date, without which we would not have been able to offer much needed support to vulnerable households during this global crisis.


Climate change charity, Nottingham Energy Partnership is working with Nottinghamshire County Council to distribute grants to vulnerable households in Nottinghamshire County affected by COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Winter Grant Scheme is available from December 2020 to the end of March 2021 to support those most in need across England with the cost of energy (heating, cooking, lighting), water bills, food and other essentials.
