Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest Scheme

Lesley Griffiths - Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural AffairsWelcome to the Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest Scheme, which is an important part of our work to help reduce the number of households in Wales who are struggling to keep their homes warm and cope with high energy bills.

Nest helps to make people’s homes warmer and more fuel efficient, which also improves many other aspects of their lives.

The scheme offers householders a range of free, impartial advice and support to help them reduce their energy bills and, for those who are eligible, a package of free home energy efficiency improvements, such as a new boiler, central heating or insulation.

Since 2011, when the Welsh Government first established Nest, over 85,000 households in Wales have benefited from free advice and support, with over 23,700 of those households receiving a package of free home energy efficiency improvements. Over 1,190 households have been able to claim new or additional benefits following referral for a Benefit Entitlement Check. The value of these additional benefits averages over £1,900 per household per year. In addition, 1,000 households have benefited from a referral for a Warm Home Discount rebate on their electricity bill. The total value of these rebates has been over £140,000.

If you are struggling with your energy bills then you too could benefit from Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest. Call Freephone 0808 808 2244 to see what help Nest can offer you.
