New Funding for Heating & Insulation Improvements

Shropshire Council LogoKeep Shropshire Warm,  Shropshire Council’s energy advice scheme, have just announced here that new heating and insulation funding is available for householders and landlords across Shropshire, thanks to the latest round of government funding.

Householders who were previously ineligible such as those not receiving benefits, or park home residents may now be eligible after the eligibility criteria were widened.

Oliver Rothwell, Project Manager at Keep Shropshire Warm said:

“This new criteria offers a great opportunity for residents in Shropshire to access financial help with heating replacements and insulation upgrades. I would encourage any households who are struggling with old and inefficient heating systems to call Keep Shropshire Warm without delay, even if you have previously been turned down for support.”

Funding is available to households on a low income with household members who have a health condition, are over the age of 60 or have children under five living at the property. If you are on a low income and not in one of these categories, you may still qualify if you spend a lot of money on heating your home.

Residents can get more information and check their eligibility by contacting the Keep Shropshire Warm team on 0800 112 3743 or by emailing advice@mea.org.uk.

For those that are eligible, funding rates will be calculated on the energy savings that any improvement works brings, following an initial survey. The level of funding is likely to be between half and all of the cost of the measures installed.
