Warm Home Assistance Scheme
Warm Wales is Working with Wales & West Utilities on the Warm Home Assistance Scheme; we identify households who could benefit from a connection to the gas network and assess their eligibility for a grant towards the cost.
A new gas connection can of be of real benefit to those with high heating bills and low income and we are proud to have issued 11,630 vouchers worth in excess of £12million by 31st July 2017.
For many homes, a switch to a gas central heating system can play a major part in alleviating fuel poverty. Connecting to the gas network can improve the energy rating of the home and reduce energy bills significantly. We are committed to playing our part in connecting at least another 6,000 households through the Warm Home Assistance Scheme by 2021.
People wishing to benefit from a mains gas connection need to either live in an area identified by the government for support, live in a privately owned or rented property and be in receipt of qualifying benefits, or be in fuel poverty: whereby a high percentage of disposable income is spent on household fuel use.
We can help establish whether you are likely to qualify for a grant, visit our gas connection page to find out more, or call us 01656 747 622.
