NIA to support its members in promoting and accessing the Government's new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund

Release Date 07 May 2014

Following last week's announcement by the Department of Energy and Climate Change of the new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF), the National Insulation Association (NIA) will be promoting the scheme to consumers and signposting them to its members, as the preferred choice to carry out the insulation work.

The GDHIF will be replacing the current cashback scheme in England and Wales and is expected to be launched in June. It will provide up to £6,000 cashback for Solid Wall Insulation, up to £1,000 for a combination of other measures and will be open to both Green Deal Providers and Green Deal Installers.

Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the NIA commented: "The new GDHIF scheme provides a tremendous opportunity for both householders and the insulation industry and we will be actively promoting the scheme to consumers, and recommending that they choose NIA members to carry out the work in order to obtain additional peace of mind. NIA members are required to meet our robust membership criteria and sign up to a strict code of professional practice.

He added: "Green Deal Providers and Insulation Installers wishing to benefit from our promotion of the scheme and signposting of consumers to our members should contact us as soon as possible to apply for membership ready for the launch of the GDHIF in June".

The NIA offers a number of membership opportunities. If you are Interested in finding out more about membership please contact Bev Coombe, Membership and Communications Manager; on 01525 383313 or email
