Heating bill scheme to help carers–Scotland

Up to 7,000 carers could see their heating bills fall after the Scottish Government announced it was expanding a special scheme.

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Secretary Alex Neil revealed the energy assistance package was being expanded to those people looking after family and friends who receive the carers’ allowance.

Under the scheme, they could have a new heater or boiler installed free of charge or have their home insulation improved at no cost to themselves.
