Get help with your energy bills and keeping warm this winter

Do you live in a household on a low income (below £16,190) and

  • …are aged over 60?
  • …or have a long-term health condition?
  • …or have children aged under 16?

If so, the Seasonal Health Interventions Network (SHINE) scheme may be able to help you.

As part of our drive for Better Homes, the council has signed up to the scheme that provides energy advice and support to residents at risk of fuel poverty. The SHINE programme, managed by Islington Council, assists people living all over London, allowing Lambeth residents to access the benefits.

If you qualify for SHINE, you may be eligible for over 20 services including:

  • Energy advice
  • Energy and water discounts
  • Heating and insulation grants
  • Fire safety checks.

We know fuel poverty affects millions across London, and this problem becomes particularly acute over the cold winter months. We want to ensure that our residents have a warm, dry and safe home so we encourage all households that feel that they may qualify for the scheme, to get in touch with SHINE.

To find out if you could benefit, get in touch with SHINE through the following:
