Les Kinvig has started with Care and Repair as our new Project Officer dealing with the Scottish Governments Equity Release pilot scheme for Argyll and Bute. Les takes over from George Gall who has done a great job getting this program off the ground and now returns to his Care and Repair Officer duties dealing with major disability adaptations for our clients.
Argyll & Bute Care and Repair entered into a partnership with the Energy Savings Trust to pilot ‘Help for Homes’ – an equity release funded home improvement and energy efficiency service.
The Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Equity Loans scheme (HEEPS: Equity Loans) provides equity loans of up to £40,000 towards the capital cost of installing eligible energy efficiency measures and essential repairs for owner occupiers and smaller private sector landlords. The pilot project, was launched in three Care and Repair areas including Argyll and Bute and offers assistance through the process by Care and Repair from application to completion of works for applicants who would benefit from support through the process.
