Bag yourself a Home Upgrade Grant

Is your home NOT heated by gas? Is your gross household income less than £39k? Does your home have an EPC rating of D, E, F, or G? Then please read on.


Oxfordshire County Council has been awarded funding under the Home Upgrade Grant Phase 2 (HUG2) scheme. HUG2 is a government-backed scheme running from April 2023 to March 2025, providing energy efficiency measures and low-carbon heating for low-income households. 


It’s open to owner-occupiers and private renters living in the worst-performing, off-gas grid homes. The aim is to tackle fuel poverty by upgrading energy-inefficient homes and make progress towards the UK’s 2050 net zero target.


If you are concerned about the cost of energy bills and looking for ways to make your home cheaper to heat and more comfortable to live in? A grant is available from Oxfordshire County Council to improve residents’ homes. This government-backed scheme targets inefficient homes not heated by gas. 


With the Home Upgrade Grant, eligible homes can receive tailored energy solutions, from insulation to solar panels, resulting in a warmer home, lower bills and reduced carbon emissions - all delivered by the Welcome the Warmth team.


Funding is limited so early application is advised. Check your eligibility and apply at
