Access Warm Front grants now!

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn is urging constituents to find out if they qualify for Warm Front funding, available to help people heat their homes. At the moment 1 in 4 households in Yorkshire and The Humber are estimated to be living in fuel poverty, and in Sheffield, over 42,500 households are estimated to be fuel poor.

 

Fuel poverty is classed as households that are unable to afford to heat their homes to a level adequate for good health and well-being. Rising energy prices mean there are now around 1.5 million more households in fuel poverty than there were at this time last year.

 

Warm Front provides grants of up to 3,500 towards heating and insulation improvements to low income families and the elderly. Funding is still available for eligible households, who can benefit from simple insulation measures such as cavity wall and loft insulation, to bigger measures such as a new, efficient, central heating system.

 

Anyone who owns their own home or rents privately, and is receipt of certain benefits or the Cold Weather Payment, may be able to benefit from a grant.

 

Meg Munn said:

 

“This money is designed to help people keep their homes warm when the weather is cold. I’m concerned that this funding is not being spent because people aren’t aware of the support they are entitled to.

 

Living in a cold damp home can affect your health, especially for older people, young children whose immune system has not yet fully developed and those with long term sickness and disabilities.

 

Due to the milder weather this winter there has been less demand on the Warm Front scheme, however it is due to come to a close soon. That’s why I’m urging anyone who thinks a Warm Front grant might help them to find out if they are eligible.”

 

If you think that you might be eligible please visit the website:

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Environmentandgreenerliving/Energyandwatersaving/Energygrants/DG_10018661 or call 0800 316 2805.

If you are eligible for a grant, the Warm Front team will do all the paperwork for you.
