Warm Front Scheme

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what grant provision is available from the Warm Zone scheme to otherwise eligible citizens for materials for insulation work carried out by themselves rather than through a contractor. (251199)

Warm Zones Ltd., operated by National Energy Action, brings together, using an area-based approach, all of the assistance available to households through the Government-funded Warm Front scheme and energy supplier activity under the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT). Whilst these schemes do not provide direct grant to—individuals who choose to carry out insulation work themselves, energy suppliers do work with major retailers to provide subsidies for DIY loft insulation materials. Additionally, tailored, free and impartial advice is available through the government-funded Act on CO2 advice line run by the Energy Saving Trust.
