Other Grants

If you are in receipt of a means tested benefit and live in a energy inefficient home you may be eligible for grant funding under the Welsh Government's NEST Scheme.  This Scheme provides a range of energy efficiency measures to make homes warmer.  Homes that are energy inefficient usually includes older homes such as traditional stone terraced properties or larger homes which are end of terrace/semi detached or detached.   Homes with no central heating or not using mains gas for the main form of heating are also usually less energy efficient. To find out if you qualify ring the Energy Saving Trust 0808 808 2244 free from a landline or a mobile phone or apply online for a free no obligation assessment.
