National Schemes to help keep your home warmer

The Green Homes Grant

If you're a homeowner or residential landlord you can apply for a Green Homes Grant voucher towards the cost of installing energy efficient improvements to your home.

This could be used to pay for:

  • insulating your home to reduce your energy use
  • installing low-carbon heating to lower the amount of carbon dioxide your home produces.

Find out more on the GOV.UK website.

You must redeem the voucher and ensure improvements are completed by 31 March 2022.


Help with Fuel Poverty

The Energy Saving Trust website can also provide you with information and assistance if you are struggling to pay your fuel bills.

Use the energy grants calculator on gov.uk to find out whether you are eligible for help with your energy costs.
