Hard to treat insulation pilot

I have been meaning to blog something on this for ages as it was an issue Greens raised in Stroud when the funding was cut. We need to get better at this sort of insulation and projects like this are gaining valuable information. This is a pilot project that might interest people as it has some funding. Below is their news release...

Just heard no funding left for Stroud and many of other areas.

As well as offering its standard loft and cavity wall insulation and energy efficient heating measures, the Warm and Well scheme has now introduced its hard to treat pilot. There are now grants available for internal wall insulation, external wall insulation and sloping ceiling insulation, and everyone is entitled to at least a partial grant. To be eligible for a full grant (max £10,000 for internal and external wall insulation and max £3,000 for sloping ceiling insulation) the client must either be:

  • Over 60 with savings of less than £16,000 and a weekly income of less than £246 (single person) or £338 (couple)
  • Families with children under 16 with savings of less than £16,000 and a weekly income of less than £358 a week
  • Be in receipt of a qualifying benefit (please see website or call Warm and Well for details)

If a householder does not fall into any of the categories above, they are eligible for the ‘Able to pay’ grant which is a 40% grant (to a maximum of £3,000). During this pilot stage of the scheme, all insulation measures are being installed by Domestic and General Insulation Ltd. For more information visit the website: www.warmandwell.co.uk
