Stevenson Welcomes Return of Warmer Homes Scheme

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement from the Housing Minister Kevin Stewart that the national energy efficiency scheme for homes will re-start today.

In a statement, Mr Stewart announced that Warmer Homes Scotland, the national scheme to help reduce people’s fuel bills by making their homes more energy-efficient, will re-start on 1 July. As a result, over 300 staff employed on the programme have been brought out of furlough to start installing energy efficiency measures in people’s homes.

Housing Minister Kevin Stewart said:

“Our national scheme to help make more homes become energy efficient will re-start on July 1, which should help to reduce fuel bills and provide vital support to those who have been struggling even more as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Warmer Homes Scotland makes a huge difference to the lives of thousands of fuel poor households every year and I know this will also be welcome news to the hundreds of workers employed to deliver the service.

“We want a Scotland where everyone lives in a warm home and where we have put an end to fuel poverty. By 2021 the Scottish Government will have allocated over £1 billion to tackle fuel poverty and improve energy efficiency, making people’s homes warmer and cheaper to heat.

“I would ask people to please be patient while work resumes. Warmworks will contact people as soon as possible to confirm when their service will be restarted.”

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“I am pleased that this scheme is to re-start. It is a vital part of the action being taken by the Scottish Government to tackle fuel poverty and also helps the environment.

“Many people across the country have been assisted by this scheme and I look forward to seeing more and more people benefitting now that work can safely recommence.”
