Petition Residential Park Home residents should be eligible for £400 electricity grant
Residential Parks provide retired and semi-retired people with affordable homes in mobile home parks, where they can live comfortably in a secure environment
Every household in the UK will get a £400 energy bill discount and this needs to be provided to all Park Home Residents without any delay
All households especially those of the retired and the semi-retired are "being hit hard" by spiralling bills, and the government has promised "significant support to the British people" to help them get by.
Residential Parks are purpose-built for the older population, who are struggling with a good quality of life and need as much support as possible for dealing with increased prices.
There should be no ambiguity in ensuring that all park home residents are able to get the £400 energy grant.

Further funding will be available to provide equivalent support of £400 for energy bills for the 1% of households who will not be reached through the Energy Bills Support Scheme.
On 29 July the Government announced a new provision to deliver equivalent support this winter for energy bills to residents of park homes and other households which will not benefit from the Energy Bills Support Scheme discount. An announcement with details on how and when these households across Great Britain can access this support will be made this Autumn.
