Family Mosaic has been awarded funding from Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) and Foundations Independent Living Trust (FILT) after negotiations with the energy regulator, Ofgem, following its failure to meet its target under the now closed Community Energy Savings Programme (CESP).
The money will be used to fund work to make the homes of older or vulnerable people more energy efficient or easier to keep warm.
Anything that would help to make a home more energy efficient and/or easier to keep warm would be considered for funding, from simple measures such as draught-proofing right through to boiler replacement.
The maximum level of funding per application is £500 and, for more expensive work, the funds can be used alongside other sources of funding.
In order to be eligible for funding, applicants need to fit into at least one of these categories:
- Age over 60
- Receiving income-related benefits
- Having a disability or long-term illness
Applications to the Fund
Family Mosaic HIAs will assess if someone is eligible for funding and will make arrangements for the works to be carried out either by our own in-house team or, for more complex work, by external contractors which we can arrange.
If you know someone who would benefit from the Warm at Home programme, please contact Family Mosaic on Freephone 0800 028 3172 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
