Additional help for vulnerable and fuel poor households
We want to make sure that as many vulnerable households as possible are able to benefit from assistance towards the cost of energy efficiency measures. By participating in a new initiative called Flexible Eligibility we are able to offer additional support for households on a low income and who:
- live in a cold home with EPC rating of E, F or G; or
- have a long term health condition made worse by living in a cold home.
To read more about Flexible Eligibility and our qualifying criteria download our statement of intent.
To speak to someone about this scheme, find out whether you are eligible and to begin the application process call 0800 677 1543.
