Itinerant boat dwellers are now specifically excluded from Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding. The only way our community will get the grant is if we campaign for it. Please come to the next campaign meeting:

Unlike the majority of people of this country we are still left without the energy grant. The Government’s web page here
states that “You also cannot apply for a discount if you live:…..on a boat with a continuous cruising licence”. This is despite the fact that the NBTA and other groups have been discussing with MPs and Government officials for almost four months to try to get us included. The Government has failed to create a credible method for itinerant off-grid boat and caravan / vehicle dwellers to access the grant, even though second homeowners received grants for both of their homes months ago.
