Affordable Warmth Network may bring you in from the cold

More people living in Chiltern and South Bucks districts will qualify for help in keeping their homes warm this winter, thanks to changes in setting the criteria for Energy Company Obligation grants.

Both Councils support the Affordable Warmth Network, which provides help and advice to anyone struggling to keep their home warm and pay their energy bills. The Affordable Warmth Network is affiliated to the National Energy Foundation, aimed at improving use of energy in the homes.

Grants are available to householders for some heating improvements and energy-saving measures, and until recently applicants had to be in receipt of certain benefits to qualify. Recognising regional differences, local authorities have now been given greater flexibility to set their own criteria to say who will be eligible for funding, although the criteria for deciding the eligible work is still set by the energy company.
