Brady welcomes heating grant payments

Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady has welcomed the release of heating grants this week to vulnerable citizens.


The Newry and Armagh MP said:


“This week has seen the beginning of £200 heating grants being paid directly into accounts of vulnerable citizens. 


“I want to commend Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey for her work in delivering this scheme and a multitude of other schemes that continue to provide much needed support for the most vulnerable right across our society. 


“Those who are eligible for the heating grant include recipients of: State pension credit, the higher rate of attendance allowance, the highest rate care component or higher rate mobility component (or both) of Disability Living Allowance, and the enhanced rate of the daily living component or enhanced rate mobility component of Personal Independence Payment.

“This payment will be made automatically to those who are eligible over the course of the coming days.


“This is Sinn Féin in Government standing up for the most vulnerable in our society.”
