Firstly, to apply for the Central Heating Grants in Leicester Scheme you need to complete the form on this page of the website and it will be automatically emailed to us.
We will telephone you to confirm all of the information on the form and to arrange a free survey of your home and any heating system it currently has.
If you receive one of the qualifying benefits, with your permission we will carry out an automated check with the DWP that you do qualify. We don’t see any information about your benefits, we simply get a Yes / No answer as to whether you qualify.
If you are a home owner and you don’t receive benefits, we will complete the LA Flex forms with you to apply for approval by Leicester Council.
Once the relevant permissions have been granted, your new central heating system can be installed and the installer won’t be paid until it is complete and you are happy with it.
