sorry must have read it wrong "homeowners and private tenants over 70", thought it was all homeowners (one group) and over 70's (second group).

This scheme has been running for a the last few years. It is one of those schemes where public money is thrown at fat cats with the excuse that it is of some benefit to the 'valnurable'. You will be assest by Warmfront which will do an estimate of the cost. If the Government grant doesn't cover the cost (as you can imagine it doesn't in most cases), you need to pay the remainer. The problem with this scheme is that you need to employ an 'approved' company to carrie out the work. These 'approved' companies are not cheap and some of them are actually gansters who try to get you to spend more money than what is needed. I have looked into this scheeme myself because I am elegible but decided it's not for me. Be very careful before you sign anything and if in doubt, consult a CAB or some other independent advice service before you hand over any money.

Sadly not. the 2 groups are the homeowners or private tenants, and the subgroups are over 70 or getting benefits. It's definitely not ALL homeowners.

another benefit for being on benefits then - shouldn't we be encouraging people into work?

That's 100% wrong Pet2000. This is a genuine scheme for those who qualify where the whole cost is covered by the Eon scheme. Call them and check if you don't believe my post. They also do a discounted scheme for those not on the above beneefits for Eon customers where cavity wall or loft insulation is around £180-£200 in total (no extra costs).

Not entirely wrong in my experience. They would only have covered about one third of the cost and I would have had to pay the rest. I would also have had to clear the loft completely in advance. They would not move anything.

Because they are not insured to. What if they broke a valuable???? What if the injure themselves. Move your own bl**dy rubbish!!

Some People? I wonder if you realise what it is like to live 'On the breadline'?

Makes me sick those that complain about the poor getting handouts. The word (Aptly at this time of year) SCROOGE comes to mind. Have you read the book? If so you would understand just how familiar your rant sounds.

FWIW I just paid £175 to have my walls insulated in Nov. Not on benefits but OH retires next month. Could have waited but couldn't be bothered. Might get them to do the loft in January tho.

Anyway Fub. Good post. Heat added.

The Eon scheme for those who qualify does cover the whole cost of the work. Yes you have to clear your loft but that's not a cost is it. It is 100% free for those who qualify - no money is paid by the homeowner.

Please do not tar everyone on benefits with the same brush. There are genuine cases out there. Yes by all means have a go at the ones who abuse the system & report them but always remember those that abuse the disabled spaces that do not have blue badges. ( is that you? )
We (myself, wife,daughter,dog ) get by on less than £850 a month. Not going into the ins & outs of it all but I was on £2500 a month at work till my accident, my wife was on £1500 a month till she had to become my carer. Now she gets £50.54 a week to look after me. We don't get a new car every 3 years, we don't get any extras ( oh sorry yes we do, £10 xmas bonus ) we don't get help with income support or our mortgage . ( we have had all the goverment section checked out to see what we can claim 3 times now & that is it, £850 a month )
So please do not come back and say to me we have it easy, it's actually a very hard struggle to make ends meet at the end of the month.
We get by :santa:
