What Are Warm Front Grants ?



A grant is money, or a voucher, that contributes towards the cost of you buying something.

Usually grants are 100% free but not always.

Sometimes you have to make a small contribution towards the cost of the item. I.e Boiler grants are no longer fully funded and you need to pay up to 50% of the cost to get one

The idea of giving grants is to encourage people  to do or buy something they wouldn’t normally consider unless it was free or massively discounted.

A lot of companies use grants to discount products to encourage sales.

  • Charities,
  • Government
  • companies often have funds which are available to help, especially if you’ve got children.
