Tips to stay warm
Quick get a grant to stay warm – time is running out
Warm Front (England) is the government’s main grant-funded programme for tackling fuel poverty in England and was launched in June 2000. Households which meet the eligibility criteria can get a grant to pay for:
- loft insulation,
- cavity wall insulation,
- fitting central heating,
- fitting gas room heaters with thermostat controls,
- hot water tank insulation,
- converting a solid fuel open fire to a glass front fire.
To qualify, you must be getting certain income-related benefits, live in a property that is poorly insulated and/or not have a working central heating system.
The Warm Front deal is set to be phased our by 2014, however before then anyone who has previously applied for a grant can now reapply for top-ups to carry out any repairs.
