Warm Homes Programme

Warm Homes is a £2.9 million programme to help more than 700 households in the Leeds City Region and is funded by the National Grid and Affordable Warmth Solution’s Warm Homes Fund.

Part-funded by National Grid, the Leeds City Region Warm Homes programme will install gas-fired central heating systems and gas connections in eligible privately-owned and privately-rented homes in Barnsley, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Leeds, Selby and York as well as eligible social housing properties in Leeds.

The scheme is being funded through National Grid’s £150m Warm Homes Fund (£1.6m) alongside local authorities, EON, Northern Gas Networks, Housing Leeds and private landlords.

Applicable residents must not have a central heating system already installed and struggle to heat their home.

If approved, householders will be offered new heating systems on a first-come, first-served basis. Qualifying owner occupiers will receive the system at no cost, while landlords with qualifying tenants will be offered heavily discounted systems.
