Funding insulation and heating improvements

Installing insulation or upgrading your boiler can make a real difference to the warmth of your home but also help to lower your energy bills. If you are eligible Warm & Safe Wiltshire can make a referral to an installer for insulation and heating improvements and find out if you can receive funding towards it. Currently we can refer to schemes for the following improvements:
