First Time Central Heating Grants from Keep Shropshire Warm

 

Funding is available to install free first-time central heating to vulnerable and low-income households across Shropshire. This includes households who have an existing gas connection but no central heating or where a property can be connected to the gas network for the first time. Central heating installs should be fully funded for qualifying residents and are available to tenants as well as those that own their own home.

Data provided from the Gas Network operator Wales and West has identified more than 200 households in the Wem area that are close enough to the existing gas network to be connected.

Oliver Rothwell, project Manager at Keep Shropshire Warm said

“we’d encourage anyone who is interested to contact our team today, whether for themselves or on behalf of a relative or friend.  Funding like this doesn’t come around very often, so we’re keen to help as many people as we can”.  

Applications are currently being accepted through the Council’s Keep Shropshire Warm energy advice service – which is managed by Shrewsbury based charity Marches Energy Agency.

A range of free & impartial energy advice is available from the Keep Shropshire Warm team throughout the year – including on grants and discount, energy bills and tariffs and heating and insulation. For more information and for advice call Freephone 0800 112 3743 or email advice@mea.org.uk
