The Warm Homes Scheme is a partnership project between Kent County Council and the local councils to help and support residents in Kent and Medway.

  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Loft insulation
  • Heating measures (private homeowners only)

You can find out more information and how to apply through Kent County Council or call the Warm Homes Helpline on 0800 170 1174.
