We are delighted to be working in partnership with Harborough Energy to deliver the Hinckley Healthy Homes scheme on behalf of Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council.
The aim of the scheme is to improve the energy-efficiency and running costs of the homes most in need in the community and in doing so, help to improve the overall well-being of residents.
Following the introduction by the Government of a new Flexible Eligibility scheme, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council are delighted to be one of the first local authorities to launch a healthy homes scheme for private households.
We are proud to have been chosen by the Council, along with Harborough Energy, as its scheme partners for energy advice and referrals for insulation and heating measures to households throughout the borough. We will support the delivery of the project by providing free, no obligation surveys to ensure that residents benefit from the new opportunities to improve their homes. Residents can be confident that we have been fully vetted to meet the highest quality standards and levels of consumer protection under the schemes strict data protection, codes of conduct and compliance standards.
It doesn’t matter whether you own your home or rent privately, you could still be eligible for a free, or subsidised energy efficiency upgrade, if you are in receipt of certain benefits or are on a low household income and can satisfy one of the following:
- Your home has an EPC with a rating of E, F or G
- Your home is deemed viable by our assessment
- You have a Health Condition
- You are pregnant
- You have children under the age of 5
- You are aged 65 or over
- You have recently had a fall and were admitted to hospital.
How do I get the funding?
Our energy advisers will call at homes across the borough to offer a free, no obligation, insulation inspection. Appointments for the free inspection survey will be arranged at a convenient time to suit you.
It couldn’t be easier!
The inspection survey only takes a few minutes and we will complete all the paperwork too! It doesn’t matter if you own your home or rent privately, however, funding for the scheme is limited, so now is the time to get your home insulated.
