About Better Homes Yorkshire

Better Homes Yorkshire has been created to help residents across Yorkshire pay less for energy and live in healthier, warmer homes. Residents in the participating 10 Local Authority areas will be able to take advantage of the latest Government funding options to make energy efficiency improvement works to their homes.  Better Homes Yorkshire is open to homeowners, private tenants and landlords in the Leeds City Region. Participating councils include: Leeds, Bradford, Kirklees, Calderdale, Barnsley, Wakefield, York, Craven, Harrogate and Selby.

Better Homes Yorkshire is a joint programme managed by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (The LEP).

The LEP is a private and public sector partnership working to unlock the Leeds City Region's vast economic potential by enabling businesses and enterprise to thrive. Working with the Combined Authority, the joint ambition is to ensure the Leeds City Region becomes a lean, resource efficient economy, underpinned by a 21st Century energy Infrastructure. The Better Homes Yorkshire programme ensures we support those households most in need to feel the benefits of living in a warmer, heathier home.

Working in partnership with council approved delivery partners Keepmoat Regeneration and Fortem* (formerly Willmott Dixon Energy Services) the programme aims to deliver energy efficiency improvements to over 12,000 homes in the first three years alone. These home improvements could include standard and hard to treat wall insulation, new boilers, replacement windows & doors, new central heating systems and renewable technologies such as solar photovoltaic (PV panels).
