New figures show Warm Homes Oldham is making a difference

Warm Homes Oldham is continuing to improve the lives and health of thousands of people across the borough, new government figures show.

In the last three years the borough has fitted the second highest number of home improvements and new energy saving measures, such as boilers, loft insulation and cladding, in the country.

The figures, from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, show that 170 households out of every 1,000 in Oldham have benefitted from an ECO grant to improve their homes.

With a total of 15,416 installations being completed this is the highest total in Greater Manchester.
