How do carers qualify for a central heating grant?

While Carer’s Allowance is not always listed as a qualifying benefit for ECO grants, the Local authority Flex grants scheme has been introduced to help those living on a low income, including individuals not receiving the traditional qualifying benefits.

This scheme aims to assist households in fuel poverty, and it allows for flexibility in identifying and designating eligible households, taking into account factors such as health, age, type of property, and household income. Therefore, individuals receiving Carer’s Allowance may still qualify for First Time Central Heating Grants or other heating grants under this scheme, even if they do not receive the standard qualifying benefits. 

If I'm a carer and not receiving Carer's Allowance, what is the highest funding amount I can qualify for with a central heating grant?

If you are a carer and do not receive Carer’s Allowance, you may still be eligible for a central heating grant under the ECO Flex Grants Scheme, which is designed to assist households on a low income, including those not receiving traditional qualifying benefits. The maximum grant that can be given is £30,000 in England, £25,000 in Northern Ireland, and £36,000 in Wales. In Scotland, there is no specified maximum amount for the grant.

The grant is subject to a means test, and the amount given will depend on the savings and financial resources of the disabled person. The financial resources of the carer are not relevant, even if they own the property. If the person being cared for only qualifies for an 80% grant, local councils have the discretion to top up this amount. 

What type of boiler can qualify for a free ECO central heating grant?

The ECO4 central heating grant scheme provides funding for the replacement of old, inefficient boilers with new, more energy-efficient models. To qualify for a free ECO4 central heating grant, the existing boiler in the property must typically be at least 5 years old and have an energy efficiency rating between C and G.

If the boiler meets these criteria, the homeowner may be eligible to receive a grant to cover the costs of its replacement with a new A-rated boiler. Additionally, the property owner must be the person applying for the grant, and the property must be connected to the mains gas supply.

Don’t often do reviews but felt this warranted one. A little slow getting the fitting date sorted out but once this had been sorted everything was plain sailing from start to finish. Can’t fault the engineer who fitted my combi boiler. Nothing was to much trouble to him, explained everything has he went along. Would recommend without hesitation.

The old boiler and tank were removed and the new condensing boiler fitted by the two installers from XL Heating. They were friendly, informative and tidy, working well as a team for two days. So far very happy.
