Help to improve your private housing

Warm Homes Fund programme

Our Warm Homes Fund programme helps property owners and private tenants to benefit from warmer and cheaper to heat homes.

We are offering up to 100% funding from the Warm Homes Fund to install gas central heating for owner-occupiers and private sector tenants who don't currently have it. We are working with Aran Energy Services to provide this programme.

To qualify you must:

  • own your property or privately rent – not a council house or housing association property
  • live near the mains gas supply
  • not currently have a central heating system – a boiler and radiators

You must also be either:

  • receiving a benefit
  • spending more than 10% of your disposable income on fuel bills
  • relying on your state pension to make up more than half of your home's income

This offer is available to any home in the borough that qualifies.

In addition:

  • grants are available for loft and cavity wall insulation, even if you have central heating
  • our Well Homes scheme helps Thurrock residents to improve their home, health and well-being

Since October 2019, we have been contacting households that are not connected to the mains gas supply and have a poor Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E, F or G.

If you are interested in this programme, phone our Warm Homes team.
