Charnwood residents could be eligible for a free gas connection and a free central heating system installed in your home.

The Leicestershire Warm Homes Fund Project is an initiative led by the County Council’s Warm Homes service being delivered by E.ON to connect homes across Leicestershire to gas and install central heating systems for free. You do not need to be an E.ON customer to apply.

You can apply for this scheme if you do not already have central heating.

You do not need to own your home to apply. If you rent your property, we will work with you and your landlord to get the relevant permission.

Telephone: Leicestershire County Council on 0116 305 4286 (Mon-Thurs 08:30am - 5pm, Fri 08:30am - 4:30pm (local rates).
