Free central heating and grants to keep warm

Need affordable heating and hot water? Want a warmer and more cosy home? Free mains gas central heating may be available. 

Help may be available, whatever your income, if you live in Melcombe Regis, Littlemoor, Underhill, Westham East, Westham North, Westham West and Weymouth East.

In other areas across Dorset  help may be available if you are on a low income. Gas connections are free as well. You can apply now here.

The HEAT Melcombe Regis project is offering first time full gas central heating systems (if you do not have central heating already). This is usually free. Gas or LPG Boiler Upgrade Grants may also be available if your boiler is broken, old, or inefficient.

Loft Insulation Grants and Cavity Wall Insulation Grants are available wherever you live in Dorset. Find out more here.

Fuel Poverty Awareness Day

It is Fuel Poverty Awareness Day on Friday (15/2), so please tell anyone who might benefit that this help is available.

Advice about how to keep your home warm is available here from National Energy Action (NEA), a national charity that aims to end fuel poverty for all households.
