The Warm Front Scheme

The Warm Front Scheme is open to households in England who meet the criteria for targeted help to make homes easier (and subsequently cheaper) to heat.

Grants are available for low-income families and the elderly who are in receipt of certain benefits, and the grants can be awarded to home owners and to those who live in private rented accommodation.

The applicant’s home must be poorly insulated or without a functional central heating system in place.

As well as central heating, Warm Front grants are available for loft and cavity wall insulation, draught-proofing and hot water tank insulation.
