£1.4m grant scheme to support social care improve energy efficiency now open

December 8, 2022

Residential care providers can get a slice of a £1.4m scheme aimed at helping them implement energy efficiency and low carbon measures in Wales.

The pilot scheme is part of the Welsh Government’s Backing Local Firms Fund, which has been established to support businesses to deliver more of the products and services required by the public sector, helping to create more and better jobs closer to home.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible, residential care providers must be registered with Care Inspectorate Wales. Grants of £30,000 – £50,000 are available to fund investments such as heat pumps, cavity wall insulation, double glazing/replacement windows, ground source heat pumps, loft insulation, tanks and pipes insulation. Businesses have until 21 December 2022 to apply.  

It is hoped the funding will help mitigate the impacts of the cost of energy crisis and move the sector one step closer to net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

Deputy Minister for Social Services, Julie Morgan, said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for social care providers to reduce their impact of the energy crisis, improve their Energy Performance Certificate and make the social care sector more sustainable. I encourage all residential care providers to submit an application.’
