We have grants available for:

The maximum amount people can apply for is £10,000.
The new scheme is being funded as part of the Government’s Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme.

All improvement works must be complete by Wednesday 31 March 2021.

If you do not qualify for the council scheme you may still be able to get help making your home more energy efficient by applying for the Government’s Green Homes Grant.
Vouchers cover two-thirds of the cost of eligible improvements, up to a maximum government contribution of £5,000.
Wyre Forest Energy Switch
The Wyre Forest Energy Switch is a collective energy switching scheme organised by Wyre Forest District Council and a company called iChoosr. The scheme brings residents together to use group buying power to get an exclusive deal from energy suppliers. Let us take the hassle out of switching and help you combat rising energy prices.
We will be launching the next round of the energy switch in December 2020 - more information coming soon!
