Warmer Homes Scotland, the SNP Government’s national fuel poverty scheme, has supported more than 350 people in Cunninghame North since its launch in 2015, helping people with average savings of £291 each year on their energy bills.
The scheme provides a step-by-step service to identify where energy improvements can be made in the home and arranges for this work to be carried out. It offers new central heating systems, including renewable heating technologies such as air source heat pumps, in all property types and in all regions of Scotland.
A new report also found that the scheme has wider benefits for the health, wellbeing and social lives of those people who received support. It also identified positive outcomes from the scheme for all levels of society, from householders through to the NHS and the SNP Government.
Kenneth Gibson MSP said:
“As we have a difficult and expensive winter ahead of us, it is heartening to know that the scheme has helped many people across Cunninghame North save money on their fuel bills.
“Please check if you are eligible to receive help under the scheme as soon as you can. The improvements it offers could make a real difference this winter and in the years to come.”
Ross Armstrong, Warmworks Scotland Managing Director, added:
“I’m delighted that we have been able to help more than 350 people in Mr Gibson constituency to be warmer and more comfortable in their homes, and that they have saved their fuel bills thanks to the improvements made under the scheme.
“We look forward to building on this work and helping many more people throughout Cunninghame North and across Scotland in the years to come”.
