Help for Warmth

Help for Warmth is a scheme designed to assist all clients in the domestic sector from owner occupiers, private and social tenants and their landlords, whether on low incomes, benefits, or in full time well paid employment.

The scheme can help anyone living in a domestic premises, to get advice and assistance with upgrading the energy efficiency of their home. With so many schemes, funding streams and qualifying criteria, we encourage you to contact us using the form on this page, if you are still unsure of which options are open to you.

The common assumption is that you need to be receiving state benefits to get assistance, this is not the case and many clients are surprised what they qualify for, or that we can still assist those not able to get grant funding, with full advice and support in assessing and installing these works.

Green Homes Grant

The UK Government scheme launches sometime in September and will give homeowners and landlords in England, up to £5,000 or two thirds, whichever is the least, to make energy-saving upgrades. Those on low incomes may qualify for up to £10,000. There is a lot of speculation on what measures will be covered and in what circumstances, so we will update our website when there is some more reliable information available.

With this in mind, we have created our Green Homes Grant page, to enable you to register your interest via our online form and once we are in a more informed position, we will be in contact to talk you through your options.
