Grants for warmer healthier homes

Could you benefit from up to £300 of energy efficient home improvements?

shutterstock_92595613For people who spend a lot of time at home, keeping warm in winter (and cool in summer!) is an important part of staying healthy and happy.

Community Energy Plus has recently embarked on a new project called Smart Warmth to help vulnerable and low income householders keep warm in their homes so that any health issues are not made worse living in cold or damp conditions.

 

Are you eligible for help?

You could qualify if you live in a low income household which is struggling with its energy bills and a member of your household suffers from a long term health condition.

 

What types of things can be funded?

A variety of practical measures to help you keep your home healthy and warm in the winter (and cool in the summer!) and reduce your energy bills, including:

  • Heating repairs (eg broken boiler)
  • Window repairs or replacement
  • Draught proofing
  • Extractor fans and dehumidifiers
  • Chimney balloons and chimney sweeping
  • Hot water cylinder jackets and pipe lagging
  • Portable heaters (eg oil filled radiators)

How long is the funding available for?

Limited funding is available now and must be spent by October 2016, funding is allocated on a first come first served basis.

 

I rent my home – could I still benefit from this funding?

We can’t fund anything that is the responsibility of your landlord – if you are in doubt about what might be eligible, please give us a call.
