Free grants to help make your home cosier

Are you a home owner or do you rent from a private landlord?

Do you receive any income or disability related benefits or credits?

If so, you may be eligible for a free Government funded grant worth up to £2,500 to help you keep warmer, healthier and more comfortable in your home and save you money on your energy bills.

Warm Front grants are aimed at people aged over 60 receiving benefits, families with children and expectant mothers receiving income related benefits. People who receive certain disability related benefits are also entitled to apply.

Warm Front provides a package of insulation and heating measures tailored to meet your individual needs, including loft and cavity wall insulation, draught proofing, hot water tank jackets and, in some cases, additional heating. Warm Front will organize and pay for all work up to the value of the grant.

Councillor Chris Weldon, Cabinet member for Neighborhoods said, “A warm home is vital for everyone’s wellbeing, particularly the elderly and vulnerable. We want to make sure that everyone who qualifies for a Warm Front grant applies for one. Effective heating and insulation can make a real difference and could save you money too.”

Ms Howarth.Ms Howarth, a Sheffield resident said, “I was really struggling with my old coal fire. When I heard about Warm Front, I was amazed, I didn’t really believe I could get the system for free. The difference is incredible, I’m thrilled, it’s so much easier and cleaner to use, and my house really is so warm and cosy now. I would strongly urge anyone who is eligible to apply.”
