Keeping warm in your home
Advice on your options if you have heating issues or struggle to keep warm in your privately owned or privately rented home
The Warm Front Scheme provided a package of insulation and/or heating measures up to a maximum value of £3,500 (or £6,000 if oil central heating is involved).
The scheme closed to new applications on 19th January 2013.
If you applied before this date and have an enquiry, or if you have any issues after an installation please call the Energy Saving Advice Service on 0300123 1234.
Please note that the Warm Front grant is not run by South Kesteven District Council and therefore we cannot accept any responsibility for any of the work recommended or carried out under this grant.
