What is the LA FLEX scheme?
As the qualifying criteria is defined by your Local Authority, this has allowed local councils to extend the criteria beyond household income and benefits received. Subsequently, more homeowners that are pregnant, with growing families or older occupants can get access to energy efficiency measures via the LA FLEX scheme.
Am I eligible for the LA FLEX scheme?
Your eligibility for the LA FLEX scheme ultimately depends on your Local Authority’s statement of intent, LA FLEX scheme is the extension of the government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme that helps UK households reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint monitored by Local Authorities.
This is good news for the householder and in many cases, these criteria have been extended beyond just income, benefits received or type of heating to include illnesses, pregnancy, number of children or age of occupant. This depends on your council’s statement of intent, the surveyor will assist you in filling in your council’s application form and assessing your eligibility to see if you would qualify
