Warmer Homes

Although the weather is warm at the moment , the cooler weather will return all to soon and many of us will again find our homes are draughty and hard to heat. However, the cost of getting insulation work done can be daunting.

That's where community services like Bray Area Partnership's Warmer Homes scheme can help.If you are a homeowner on a low income living in Co. Wicklow, Bray or surrounding South Dublin areas, you could qualify to get your home insulated completely free of charge.

Warmer Homes is currently seeking applications- to qualify you must be an owner occupier and in receipt of either Fuel Allowance, Family Income Supplement or Job Seekers Allowance for more than six months with a child aged under seven. It's easy to apply and services available include attic and cavity wall insulation, draught-proofing, lagging jackets, low energy light and energy advice.

The Bray Area Partnership Warmer Homes scheme is supported by the Department of Social Protection and The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland. Since its set-up in 2012 the scheme has insulated more than 500 homes in Co. Wicklow and has also created employment in the local area through a Community Employment Scheme.
