When you apply for a boiler grant we will need to give you a quick call to confirm that you meet all the necessary criteria. It will only take a few moments to assess your eligibility. We’ll need to check what benefits you receive (in the case of Working Tax Credit or Child Tax Credit we’ll need to make a note of your annual household income too) and confirm your status (whether you’re a private tenant or own your own home). We will also ask you for the make and model of your current boiler, how old it is and whereabouts it’s located. If you can have all of this information to hand when we ring we’ll be able to get your application processed a lot quicker. Apply online above.
