Home Improvement Grants – Boiler Grant Scheme 2021

A New Boiler From £499 -£999

Why are Grants Available?

This fantastic Grant has been set up to assist Low Income Households to exchange their old boilers cheaply.
Without assistance, people who cannot afford a new boiler would struggle to heat their house and keep their bills down.

The government recognises this and has earmarked funding to help those in fuel poverty.
