LEAP Boiler Scheme

Energy Projects Plus



LEAP Boiler Scheme offers assistance to repair or replace broken gas central heating boilers for vulnerable homeowners. The scheme aims to offer a fully-funded, fast-tracked solution to those in a no heat situation.

Applications to the scheme are made by a LEAP energy assessor, during a home visit. You can request a LEAP home visit by calling our Save Energy Advice Line.

This scheme usually opens to applications in Autumn, and runs to the end of March or until funds are exhausted, whichever is the sooner.
