Social tariffs for household water
If you're on a low income (up to about £21,000 a year), you may be able to access a social tariff. All water companies offer them, and they can slash as much as 90% off your bill by lowering or even capping what you pay, whether you have a water meter or not – some also require you to be on certain benefits.
About 5.7 million households are eligible, but have yet to claim, and are missing out on an estimated average of £160 a year.
Check if you qualify for a social tariff
Apply by contacting your water company, they will assess your circumstances by asking about your income and situation, and make sure you get the support you're entitled to.
