Warm and Well

Funding for energy-saving home upgrades

What is Warm and Well?

The Warm and Well schemes aim to raise awareness around cold homes and how they can impact our health and wellbeing. 

Warm and Well began in Gloucestershire in 2001. 

The scheme provides energy-efficient advice and administers grant funding for eligible households within the county.

Is Warm and Well available in my county?

Following the launch and subsequent success of Warm and Well Gloucestershire, other counties across the UK have rolled out their own Warm and Well initiatives. 

This includes Warm and Well in North Yorkshire. 

To find out if your county has a Warm and Well service we advise contacting your local council.

Reduced carbon footprint

Energy-efficient heating systems produce fewer emissions than other methods, making them the eco-friendly choice for your home and the planet.

Increased property value

The addition of green energy sources has been proven to substantially increase the value of a property, with a growing demand for renewable energy.
