    Hi there 

    Do you own your own home or is it rented I presume it is your own as if rented would be landlord responsibility 

    I'm not aware of any schemes but others may know

    @ketokid some local councils  will accept grant applications for private  housing but you would have to contact them and see if you qualify 

    You can also contact  citizens advice  and you could also contact social services and ask them for advice aswel 

    Other than that you could contact your local councilor  or have a look online 

    Hope that this helps

    @ketokid yes there is a deal , it’s the green deal that the government have organised. It’s for loft and underfloor insulation as well as windows. Hope that helps you

    At present there are a huge amount of schemes in place because of C19 but there are also massive regional variations. This also involves organisations handing off money to others to handle for a variety of reasons. So, DWP giving money to LAs for example. Start with your LA and their C19 hot line. They should be able to take you through several options.
