Derbyshire Dales District Council is launching a scheme which aims to help people living in properties which are difficult to insulate or have a great financial need.

With temperatures soaring, insulation may be the last thing on the minds of many, but the council states this is the perfect time of the year to be considering installation.

To qualify for free fitting and boiler replacement, residents must have an income of less than £15,860 a year and be receiving pension credit or child tax credit.

Jennifer Bower, chair of the council's Communities Committee, told the Matlock Mercury: "While the funding is generally for people in receipt of a qualifying benefit, there may also be help available to everyone in ‘hard to treat’ properties."

The scheme is similar to one recently launched in Scotland by the Highland Council.

Entitled Universal Home Insulation Scheme (UNIS), it is operated by Carillion Energy Services and applies to people in the five council wards of Aird and Loch Ness, Tain and Easter Ross, Cromarty Firth, Landward Caithness and Wick.
