Affordable Warmth

We want to make sure that all homes in Leeds are a decent standard and that everyone can afford to stay warm.

If you are finding it difficult to pay your gas and electric bills or you are in arrears you can contact your energy supplier to arrange to pay them back at a more affordable rate. The Cistizens advice website has information on how to switch supplier for a better energy deal.

Our affordable warmth strategy (PDF 88.5KB) has more details on how we are providing affordable warmth to residents up to 2030. The Local Authority Felxible Eligibility Statement of Intent sets out how we define who is eligible for fuel poverty funding.

Increasing your home's energy efficiency can make your home easier to keep warm or reduce your fuel bills or both. There are some grants and schemes available to increas your homes energy efficiency.
