Newcastle City Council’s Warm Home Prescription Scheme will run from 1st December 2023 until 1st March 2024.
The aim is to provide people with a grant for their heating costs, making it easier to keep their homes at a healthy temperature.
To be eligible for a Warm Home Prescription, you must:
- Be a resident of Newcastle upon Tyne
- And have been diagnosed with a chronic lung disease like asthma, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiectasis or Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)
- And either be under 50 and receive free prescriptions or be over 60 and struggle to pay your bills.
If you are eligible, you can ask to be referred to the Council’s Energy Services Team. We can ask one of our Social Prescribing Link Workers to refer you.
