Answer for Better Boilers Scheme (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

All London homeowners on eligible benefits who have a broken or inefficient boiler are invited to apply through the Better Boilers pages on the GLA website. Mechanisms for marketing the scheme to this group include not only the GLA website but also flyers in local facilities such as job centres and local GP surgeries and advertisements in local newspapers. We are also:

       working with boroughs, NGOs (such as National Energy Action), and charities to ensure that they publicise the scheme through a range of mechanisms, to ensure we help those most in need

       making use of existing fuel poverty referral networks and schemes that already operate across the capital (such as SHINE in Islington).
