First time central heating grants
Following successful bids to the Warm Homes Fund the council now has access to funding for first time gas central heating systems and air source heat pumps. This will allow more households to affordably heat their homes and in turn will help keep people warmer and healthier, especially if they have cold-related or long term health conditions.
To find out if you qualify to access the funding for a first-time gas central heating system or air source heat pump in your home, or someone you know, contact (01482) 396180 or email the healthy homes team
Funding is limited, so don’t delay getting in contact.
