Suffolk’s Greener Homes Scheme

“This scheme is now closed to new applicants”.

The current funding scheme provided by Energy Companies which had paid for all insulation work has now ended. However, it is likely that new sources of funding maybe available in 2013 and we will promote any new schemes on this website.

If you have already applied for insulation under this scheme and have any queries about your application please ring the Warm as Toast hotline number 0845 603 7686 or e-mail the Greener Homes team at SEAL@suffolkcoastal.gov.uk.”

Please find attached a poster explaining the ‘Suffolk Greener Home Scheme’.

This may also benefit persons external to the group who may be interested in taking advantage of the Councils/Governments scheme to improve their home.

The suggested income stream in generous, but more importantly it will save us money personally and promote the enviroment!

It is worth investigating before the offer ends and whilst the weather is favourable.

For every installation from a referral with your code; the installer will donate £15 to your organisation. If a household has both Cavity Wall and Loft Insulation installed; the cash-back will be £30 per household. Just 70 installations will provide your organisation with over £1,000. Your organisation will then receive the community cash-back in a single payment from Suffolk County Council by the end of the Autumn term 2012.

All details, including an FAQ section are available at www.greensuffolk.org/toast
