Warm home discount for students?

Is the warm home discount offered to students? Unfortunately lost my job last week, so seeing what help if any is available.

Thanks

in short students are not included int he warm home discount scheme offered by Bulb. There will be some students that have certain circumstances that might met the criteria for the warm home discount, but i would argue that is the exception.

a typical issue, students are looked over with regard to any social security benefit scheme.

Not sure about discunts for students like that. You should just search for cheap houses and apartents on https://www.collegerentals.com/cities/customwritingcompany you can choose by state.
