Last chance to apply for warmer home support
PR2418/PW/MF - 10/03/2022
Mid Sussex District Council is encouraging people who struggle to pay their energy bills and keep their homes warm to apply for Government support before applications close on 31 March 2022.
The Green Homes Grant scheme offers energy saving home improvements like insulation, renewable heating systems and double glazing to people on low incomes who live in homes with a low energy rating. The improvements on offer help residents to reduce their energy bills, make their homes warmer and more comfortable and lower their carbon emissions.
The scheme, which is funded by the UK Government, is being delivered by Warmworks on behalf of Mid Sussex District Council. Warmworks help eligible households by arranging a survey of their home and recommending a package of improvements to make it more energy efficient. Installations are carried out by an approved and trusted contractor at no cost to the householder, and Warmworks are on hand to support residents through the process.
Councillor Norman Webster, Mid Sussex District Council Cabinet Member for Community said:
“With energy prices set to rise significantly for everyone this April, many people could find it difficult to heat their homes next winter.
“The Green Homes Grant scheme offers vital improvements, which could help people on low incomes to be warmer at home, reduce their bills and decrease their home’s impact on the environment.
“Warmworks have a strong track record of delivering schemes to more than 25,000 homes, which have helped their customers improve their heating, and be happier, healthier and more comfortable.
“Time is running out quickly to apply for the scheme, so I’d encourage everyone in Mid Sussex to check if they are eligible to receive help from the Green Homes Grant scheme as soon as possible.”
Residents can find out if they are eligible for the Green Homes Grant scheme by completing a short survey at surveys.est.org.uk/s/GreenHomesGrantSchemeLAD or by calling Warmworks free of charge on 0808 196 8255.
