Gas Connection Grants
For many homes, a switch to a gas central heating system can improve the energy rating of the property and reduce energy bills significantly.
We work with Wales & West Utilities on the Warm Home Assistance scheme providing householders with gas connection grants and issuing vouchers to qualifying customers. These can then be used against the cost of a new gas connection.
Thousands already helped
Thousands of properties have benefitted with help towards connecting to the gas network since the scheme started in October 2019.
Who qualifies for a voucher?
If you live in a privately owner or rented property there are two ways of qualifying for a gas connection voucher:

Spending a High Percentage of Disposable Income on Fuel

How it works
Complete the online Grant Application Form we will then let you know without delay if you can receive a contribution towards your gas connection. If you qualify, we will send you a Gas Connection Voucher to pay towards the cost of the gas connection.
This voucher, along with any additional payment required, and a signed quotation acceptance form, should then be sent to Wales & West Utilities who will arrange for your gas connection to take place.
Important Note: You should apply for a contribution towards your gas connection BEFORE you pay Wales & West Utilities for the gas connection.
For further help or advice on applying for a gas connection grant, you can contact our connection team through the details on our contact page or simply complete the online application form yourself.
