Green Homes Grant - What You Need to Know

Join CAfS for an in-depth overview of the new Green Homes Grant, which could give you up to £10,000 for improvements to make your home warmer and cut your energy bills.

The grant can be used for measures such as insulation, low-carbon heating systems, double-glazing and more. The scheme is open now but only runs until the end of March, so you'll need to act quickly to take advantage of it.

Our talk will give you all the information you need to get started:

  • How the scheme works
  • How to apply
  • Eligibility criteria for the full grant voucher
  • The small print (terms and conditions)
  • Challenges to be aware of

Our knowledgeable panel from the CAfS energy services team will share their insights on the scheme and their experience in retrofitting for energy efficiency, to help you on your way to a cosy home. 

There'll be ample time for you to put your questions to them.

Our panel:

  • Tina Holt
  • Kim Kimberlee-Smith 
  • Rick Squires

We're able to offer this comprehensive workshop free of charge thanks to funding from the Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme, with support from Cumbria's district and county councils and the Cumbria Community Foundation.
