Loft and cavity wall insulation is now available to those of us living in our own homes or in privately-rented accommodation.
Sheffield City Council says:
To be eligible for the free loft and cavity wall insulation in the first phase of installation, you need to be a private home owner or live in private rented accommodation in Walkley, Manor Castle, Arbourthorne or Hillsborough areas of Sheffield. Alternatively, you need to be aged 70 or over, or claiming a qualifying benefit.
Hillsborough Ward Residents
If you live in Hillsborough Ward, (which includes Owlerton and Wadsley) one of our promotions team will be contacting you soon. Look out for our postcard and leaflet, like the ones below, coming through your door letting you know when we’ll be in your neighbourhood.
Everyone who is a home owner or private tenant in the ward we are currently working in, regardless of age, income or size of property will be visited. If you live in Hillsborough, our Energy Advisors will be knocking on your door offering free loft and cavity wall insulation, providing the property is suitable. We’ll leave a card if you’re not in, and a number to call if you’d like to make an appointment for one of our Energy Advisors to come out and visit you at a more convenient time.Walkley Ward Residents
If you live in Walkley ward, you should have already had a visit or a letter from one of our Energy Advisors. Even though our Energy Advisors have moved out of the area, it’s not too late to take advantage of our free insulation scheme. If you haven’t yet signed up for the scheme, or would like an appointment for us to come out and visit you, please contact us.
North West Sheffield News Blog is keen to hear about residents’ experiences of this scheme, so please get in touch if you have either applied successfully, applied and been refused, or have had work completed …
