PEOPLE in Calderdale who may be eligible for a free home insulation scheme are being contacted inviting them to apply.

Calderdale Council has secured Government funding to help residents improve the warmth and efficiency of their homes with free insulation.

Letters are being sent to homes that could benefit from the scheme, offering advice about eligibility and how the Council and its partner YES Energy Solutions can arrange installations.

The scheme, which runs until March 2023, is offering fully funded cavity wall insulation and loft insulation to eligible homeowners.  Private renting tenants are also able to apply, however landlords must contribute one third of the total costs.

To qualify, residents must have a household income of £31,000 or less, or receive means tested benefits. Properties must also have a low energy efficiency rating.

Calderdale Council’s cabinet member for climate change and resilience, with responsibility for housing, Cllr Scott Patient, said: “The Council is doing all it can to support residents to improve the energy efficiency of their property.

"This includes schemes like this one, to help reduce energy bills whilst keeping homes warmer, as well as proactive work to improve energy efficiency standards in rented properties.”
