Scheme in Detail
The Affordable Warmth Scheme allowed vulnerable residents in
Rossendale to access home heating upgrades and insulation measures to improve
the energy efficiency of their homes.
Rossendale Council’s Affordable Warmth Grant provided funding for residents eligible for heating and insulation upgrades, which included:
Boiler replacements and repairs
First time central heating systems
Cavity wall insulation
New radiators and radiator repairs
Gas fire services and repairs
Draught proofing measures
Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding was also added
to the funding mix to further cover the costs for some residents, meaning residents

Single widowed mum of two, Katie Crossley was facing a winter with a completely broken boiler, but help from the Rossendale Affordable Warmth Scheme provided her with a fully funded boiler install.
“My heating had caput and I said to the kids you better wrap this is going to be character building, because I didn’t have the money to put into a new boiler,” said Katie.
“I had tried to get help from funding before but I was told that I earned 38p too much, so the entire cost of the boiler would go straight to me.”
Katie and her sons aged 11 and 16, were referred on to Rossendale Borough Council and YES Energy Solutions.
“I spoke to Michaela and she was straight onto it, she was an absolute star. If I had the money I’d buy some flowers to take to her. I really do feel like she saved my life at the time.”
Katie’s A-rated gas boiler was installed the day before Christmas Eve, and she explained:“I was so pleased that the workmen were there, I couldn’t thank them enough. They were here exactly when they said and they were efficient."
