Help is available to help you keep your home and family warm this winter, thanks to the Warm Homes Scheme.
You could be eligible for help to improve your home’s heating or electrics to ensure you stay warm and well when the temperatures drop.
Funding is available to help vulnerable residents as part of Knowsley Council’s campaign to help people tackle fuel poverty and heat their homes in an affordable way.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible for assistance, you must be an owner occupier, aged 60 and over or the parent/guardian of a child under 5, or a parent or guardian of a child aged five to 17 where the child suffers from a long-term health condition. You must also either be in receipt of eligible benefits or on a low income.
The scheme aims to ensure households across the borough have modern, energy-efficient boilers and central heating systems to keep them warm and healthy, as well as reducing heating bills.
In addition to the Warm Homes Scheme, the council and its partners are also providing residents with practical advice to help them keep warm and healthy as part of the ‘Be Prepared For Winter’ campaign.
Advice includes how to keep warm (wearing many thin layers, drinking hot drinks), be more energy efficient, reduce your energy consumption (and bills) and ensure you’re up-to-date with your seasonal flu jab.
