5. Great British Insulation Scheme

The government have launched the £1 billion Great British Insulation Scheme to help some families insulate their homes.

Families in lower council tax bands with less energy-efficient homes could be offered upgrades such as roof, loft or cavity wall insulation.

You can use the online checker for the Great British Insulation Scheme to find out if you are eligible. The online tool will ask a series of questions – including how you heat your home, whether your home has solid or cavity walls, and if you are receiving any benefits.

If you are eligible you can make a referral to your energy company.
