    Unfortunately in Northern Ireland where there is a monopoly they don't do it.

    I think that 20/21 is the final year for this scheme, but now is the time to apply to your supplier as they only have so much to give before the money runs out.

    I didn't know it was being stopped after this year, that's a bit of a shame.  I was totally reliant on it last year as I couldn't cover the heating bills on ESA alone.  Thankfully I have PIP now but there must be many other people that need it.  Do you know if there will be a similar scheme to replace it next year?
