The ScottishPower Hardship Fund - Now Open For Applications
The ScottishPower Hardship Fund is available to ScottishPower customers who have difficulties paying their bills due to low income. This fund, which is independently administered by Social Enterprise Direct, has been set up to help customers get their energy bill payments under control by reducing or cancelling energy debts.
If customers are successful in their application, their energy arrears will be cleared or reduced by a credit from the fund to their ScottishPower account.
As part of the application, customers must contact a recognised debt advice agency such as National Debtline, StepChange or a local Citizens Advice Bureau.
