Feeling the cold? Do you need help with the cost of fitting energy-saving improvements in your home?

We offer financial assistance and grants to home owners for small-scale energy efficiency works such as draught proofing or loft insulation. Limited funding is available for homeowners and private tenants who are disabled or over 60, and on a means tested benefit to assist with energy efficiency measures.
