Affordable Warmth Assistance

The ECO (Energy Company Obligation) for the big six energy suppliers includes an Affordable Warmth Obligation for them to provide heating and insulation improvements for low-income and vulnerable households.

There are complex means-tested eligibility criteria for the ECO scheme. Call the Energy Saving Advice Service on 0300 123 1234 to check whether you might be eligible, and how to apply if you are. Or follow the link to help find energy grants and help with heating costs. 

If you are in receipt of Pension Credit this can help you qualify for help, such as grants for energy efficiency measures for your home.

The Herts Warmer Homes scheme also provides extra help for those needing to stay warm in cold winter months.
