ukactive has called for the results of the BEIS commission review to be shared with the activities and physical activity sector. This comes after the Prime Minister announced a plan to support non-domestic users and businesses with their energy bills, which included the six-month Energy Bill Relief scheme for the same users.
The government will publish a review of the operation of the scheme, which will inform any decisions or future support to be made. Leisure centres and swimming pools are among those that are most at risk of closure or risk-reducing services for the neediest.
The review will focus on identifying the most vulnerable non-domestic customers that will continue to receive support. The review will consider the following:
- How effective the scheme has been in giving support to vulnerable non-domestic customers;
- Which groups of non-domestic customers (by sector, size or geography) remain particularly vulnerable to energy price rises, considering the latest price position and forward curves, alongside other cost pressures; &
- How to continue supporting these customers
The BEIS survey, which closed on the 30th of October, helped to inform the structure of the review process. The survey asks for individual firm-level details on your energy usage.
