Home Insulation Grants
There are many types of insulation grants available for most of the UK. The qualification process is complicated and changes regularly. The easiest way to see if you or your household qualifies is to complete the form and an assessor will advise what grants are available.

About 35% of all heat loss from UK homes takes place through external walls. Most homes built after 1920 have twin exterior walls with a narrow cavity between them. This can be filled with an insulating material by injecting insulating material into the wall. This restricts any warmth passing between them, reducing the money you spend on heating. More...
If you're unsure whether your walls have a cavity in them you can usually check by either looking at the pattern of bricks or by measuring the thickness of the walls next to a door or window:
If the thickness of the wall is 260mm or greater, the wall probably has a cavity.
If the brickwork is exposed, look at the brick pattern. If the bricks are all oblong, laid end-to-end then the wall is likely to have a cavity. If some of the bricks are laid with the square end facing, the wall is likely to be solid.
If the wall is stone, it is likely to be solid.
