The Warm Front Scheme

If the work you want to carry out relates to insulating your home or improving your central heating you should consider the Warm Front Scheme. This provides heating and insulation improvements to households on certain income-related benefits living in properties that are poorly insulated and/or do not have a working central heating system. Qualifying households can get improvements worth up to £3,500 (£6,000 where oil central heating and other alternative technologies are recommended).

Grants are available for improvements such as:

• Loft insulation

• Draughtproofing

• Cavity wall insulation

• Hot water tank insulation

• Gas, electric, liquid petroleum gas or oil heating

• Glass-fronted fire - the Warm Front scheme can convert your solid-fuel open fire to a glass-fronted fire.

You will not have to pay anything as long as the work does not cost more than the grant available. If the cost of the work is more than the grant available then you will have to make a contribution to enable work to go ahead. Further details are available from Carillion Energy Services.
