LEAP has some very broad eligibility requirements. We want to be able to help as many people as we can by extending the service to anyone that either is already in, or is at risk of falling into fuel poverty. It is open to all types of householders – homeowners, private renters and social housing tenants.
Everyone that applies for LEAP will start with the LEAP Energy Advice Service and will be contacted to arrange an advice appointment with one of our Energy Advisors. Access to our boiler and appliance schemes is only available after the Energy Advice Service appointment, during which eligibility and suitability for those parts of the programme will be established.
We need to record the reason why each applicant is eligible, and sometimes we will need them to provide some evidence of their eligibility. This is to meet the requirements of the funding rules. Permission to collect and store any personal information will be carefully collected at every stage. For more information on how we collect and process personal information, please read the personal data section of this website.
Whether you are referring someone to LEAP or applying for yourself, you will need to provide our LEAP team with some very straightforward information. This will be quickly followed up with a telephone call.
