Grants and Funding

Expertise in local and national grant schemes

InstaGroup has over 20 years of experience in accessing funds to improve home energy efficiency. We’ve been involved in many grant schemes led by both energy companies and government policy.

We’re currently helping Local Authorities deliver energy efficiency programmes through the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) and the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG).

The Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS)

The Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS) is a new £1 billion scheme from the government. Funds are available to help reduce energy bills and warm up homes through the installation of single insulation measures such as Loft insulation, Cavity Wall insulation and External Wall insulation.

We can help householders find out if they are eligible for GBIS funding, and apply on their behalf. We can also help installers to access the GBIS scheme.

Support for funding applications

We’ve accessed funding, managed works and installed our systems on numerous large-scale, retrofit projects for social housing providers and local councils.

We are currently delivering housing upgrades across the UK through a range of local and national funding initiatives.

Our membership of key industry bodies and trade organisations means we are involved at governmental level when upcoming changes to funding policy are discussed. We can use this advance knowledge to react quickly, helping our customers to secure funding for their projects.
