Free grant if you qualify!

TiccoTorres Avatar
8y, 1m agoFound 8 years, 1 month ago
Ok, go easy on me as this is the first link I have tried!!

You may be able to qualify for a grant of up to £2,700. I thought it might be helpful (especially with winter coming up) to have a look at. My girlfriend has applied as we are in a rented property (yes that does count too) and have a child.

They apparently do come around and assess your property, but it's a good venture for if you do qualify :-)

I hope I haven't peed anyone off or anything. Any feedback (negative and positive) would be greatly appreciated.

Got my house (which I own) insulated free of charge, get yearly free boiler checks and lots of those 'radiation' giving light bulbs. Worth a try.

With Christmas looming too phone your local fire station and get some free smoke alarms fitted. Did mine a couple of weeks ago. They warned about the hazards of Xmas lights.

haha! yeah i hear ya foxy.

bottom line is we have more of a purpose in life than bored, life-benefit claiming morons, so don't you worry. we workers do have more to cheer about :-)

seriously, i thought about this properly. when i came out of uni from my 3 year degree and was unemployed for 2 months, i used to argue more with my employed partner and whatnot all the time. now we are in jobs and have been since (or myself as a trainne teacher which in effect IS a job) we get on so much better and have bonded more. :-) no need to rant, we have the better flip side of the coin foxy!

Do you care for the person in your home ?

I rent my house and saw this offer so took it to my tenant. It was fab all i had to do was sign to say i agreed with the work being done. What landlord wouldn't want their property updated for free!
My tenants are great tenants i want them to be happy in my house so this was just a big bonus for me.

Can anyone direct me to the site I should use for Scotland please?

My parents have just had a new boiler fitted as theirs conked out a couple of weeks ago...they are both pensioners would they be able to claim money back to help towards the cost?
#22
you need to be over 60 in scotland total pants im disabled and on low income benefits. I could do with some extra help to heat the home and the family we are in a rented flat. Some of the requirements are just stupid.

so people on benefits are morons that's great the only morons in here are people like you pair of bigot's i was nearly killed at work 4 years back doing overtime on a Sunday evening when i should have been at home so because i was left unable to work I'm a sponger.

What i want to know is if you claimed 1penny when you where living the high life at university for years learning to be a professional sponger (or Teacher what a cushy job more time off than at work) and when will you be paying back the grant you got to study then again i doubt you ever will because you wont be earning enough because you have to work 40 hours a week and earn a proper wage people like you pair of tossers make me sick not everyone wants to claim benefits.

I don't light my house up like Blackpool illuminations why say that do you do it? and feel stupid because of because you never had Christmas come to your house. You just think foxymissroxy maybe you can get your teacher bigot friend to help with your spelling at least learn to spell before voicing your opinion about people who get benefits because we are not all idiots.

I qualified for a new combi boiler (we had an old back boiler) by 10 pounds!, they reduced the income cut off so that more people were entitled to the grant ( i had previously been rejected.) I wanted to post about this grant, but have not got around to it, well done OP. I posted one about the sure start maternity grant quite a while ago, but it became quite a heated debate. Nevermind, you can not please everyone, all of the time, only some of the people some of the time!

My sister-in -law called in the local fire station too , got free smoke alarms fitted and she was also given a free gift --deep fat fryer. Nice surprise that she wasn`t expecting. Dont know if the free gift is just in certain areas as I dont think they advertise this.

First of all, reread my post as (as i expected someone to do it) you have misunderstood. I won't be drawn into name calling and as for the "morons" part, I referred to LIFETIME claimers on benefits. Get your facts right before you try arguing a lost cause with me, cause you just made yourself look rather silly.

As for teaching, well I had to work bloody hard for that - 3 A levels at grade B to go to uni, a 2:1 (if you know what that is) in psychology for 3 years study and now another year at uni in order to teach. Teachers don't actually get that much time off either as you need the weekends to sort your medium term planning out and your holidays to sort out classroom displays and organise where you want your TA's.

Any more words matey???

Nice comeback TiccoTorres!
Polly69, there really was no need for that, the man was just posting a helpful thread that really could help some people. I'm certainly going to apply, I work but am a single parent through no fault of my own, I rent, and my house is freezing, I don't moan, but knowing that there is help out there is great, and if TiccoTorres had posted this I wouldn't have known. It's very sad about your accident but being bitter and venting your anger here isn't going to help you.
#31
I am on benefits and claimed under this scheme - let me just state here that I've found it really hard living on benefits as I have always previously worked all my life. Those who think its a laff living on benefits should try it for themselves - its really hard and some weeks I have to make a choice of either toothpaste or soap.... not nice but there you go - as for the people who have lots of expensive things who are claiming benefits - they must work also because I cant bloody afford anything except extreme basics.

My boiler is really really old (about 20-30 years old) and sometimes does not work, it just works when it feels like it, its really unefficient and uses tons of gas. I applied and a nice bloke came round and took one look at it and said it would not be a problem, he stuck a warning about asbestos sticker on it (hmmmm not happy I've been living with that) and some engineers are booked to come round and replace the boiler.

I am really please because I can't even afford a call-out fee for someone to take a look at the beast. I am extremely grateful to warmfront and can't wait for lower gas bills (then I might not have to make the choice between toothpaste or soap etc) and a warmer house, as I have never had the heating on unless the temperature drops below 16 degrees on my thermometer! So hopefully I wont have to wear my fleece jacket inside the house anymore!!!!

So please dont be put off and give them a ring, you can also get help if you are on tax credits so its not just for people who are claiming benefits.

I hope one day there will be no need for benefits cos everyone will have a job and no need for negative comments made by people (who should just have a think about how hard it will hit them if they get made redundant).
#32
My son is 8 and receive disability living allowance but it stated quote
" Please note a Disability Living Allowance award for a child or non-dependent in your household will not qualify for the Warm Front grant."
I think that is so wrong we need help as like any other.

Is there any other inititive just for children? please
#33
bibi, that is quite harsh really :-( it's amazing is that!

i forwarded the 'deal' to my mum and she said "well although we are employed and just surviving, I'm not yet 60 you cheeky ******!"

it is a shame how some are missed out by this really and those that may need it too. there is another part to this which is for a rebate if you are 60 or over and not claiming the aformentioned benefits. the poor older generation only get 300 quid off if they decide to have this fitted! :-(
#34
Be careful - you will be on a long waiting list now and also watch out for cowboys doing the work - alot have come out the woodwork now as the goverment is piling cash into this.

Often the quote will conveniently be a few hundred pounds over the grant, so they try and make you pay extra.
#35
thanks for this will give it a go

please be more careful how you word things when talking about people on benefits, it can come across that you mean everyone which im sure you dont

im on statutory maternity pay and my partner claims disabilty living allowance we do get help with our rent and council tax but its no party we arent flush with cash i agree with what the other poster said those on benefits who have loads of money must be working on the sly as we are defo not rolling in it

Assumptions assumtions hey, you made yourself look like the IDIOT there now didn't you. . . .if you read my first post I am a carer and receive carers allownace which doesnt entitle me to the help I beleive I and thousands of other carers deserve!!!

and as for my degree I worked very hard for it and never "granted" a penny my hard working partner paid in full so dont owe the state a penny for it thanks! I also guarantee you I save the state more money in one year than I take back out of it, like other people on here who are carers will know our job never stops we never clock off and never get a holiday. This kind of care costs thousands per WEEK!!! and what do we get 50 measley quid so you think your hard done by think again. I beleive if either of us her is a biggot it aint me and you are obviously bitter but that aint my or anybody else on heres fault!!

and i could pick over your grammar but I aint that petty this is a place where people help others, make their lives easier and I for one am in on that not Trolling and making assumptions based on nothing

Pink I have no problem with people claiming benefits to which they are entitled, what gets my back up is people who have 5 kids and have never worked a day in there life run 2 cars are always out drinking and smoking plasma tvs etc you know the kinds i mean!! (they live at the top of my street!!)
#39
Why post this to help people in receipt of benefits then go on to call them morons? I have a terminal and degenerative illness and was forced to give up my job because of it. Believe me I already feel bad enough when my lovely boys miss out on school trips / holidays because of our low income, (despite my husband working nearly 60 hours a week ), so as an "educated" person please think before you generalise some of us would swap lifestyles with you tomorrow!
#40
Hey foxymissroxy please ask the neighbours at the top of your street to sign up to HUKD and then we can all "benefit" from their knowledge of how to work the system"! lol They're probably too busy planning their next holiday.
