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,
  • draught-proofing,
  • 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.
