Location notice

Please note that this page contains information and links most relevant for people living in Wales.

The Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest scheme offers a range of free, impartial advice and, if you’re eligible, a package of free home energy efficiency improvements. This can lower your energy bills, lower your carbon footprint and benefit your health and wellbeing.

The scheme provides funding for energy efficiency improvements to low income households and those living in deprived communities across Wales. It supports the Welsh Government’s commitments to:

  • reduce climate change
  • help eradicate fuel poverty
  • boost economic development and regeneration in Wales

Changes to the Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest scheme (January – March 2024)

The Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest scheme will end at the end of March 2024, with a new scheme replacing it on Monday 1 April 2024.

The new scheme will have a greater focus on low carbon technologies for the home, where it makes sense to do so. This is to support Welsh Government’s ambition to make Wales net zero by 2050.

Under the new scheme, each home will be individually assessed, and the best energy efficient solution will be offered. This may be through:

  • insulation
  • low carbon heating
  • renewable technologies

Nest will continue to provide advice to customers on saving energy and money via its website. Its freephone line will remain open from Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm, until the end of March 2024.

You can express your interest in the new scheme through the Nest advice service where you can discuss which energy efficiency and low carbon grant schemes are available.

To maximise delivery of applications in progress by the end of March 2024, Nest aren’t taking new applications. The only exceptions are for eligible vulnerable customers with no heating or hot water at the property.

If you have no heating or hot water, visit or call freephone 0808 808 2244.
