A new multi-million pound Scottish Government scheme to help people reduce their winter fuel bills has been launched.

The Scottish Government will invite bids for a contract, worth up to £224 million over seven years, to deliver a new national fuel poverty scheme from 2015. The new scheme will aim to deliver energy efficiency measures such as better insulation and heating systems. The announcement comes as a campaign is launched encouraging Scots to take advantage of free help which is available now to reduce their winter fuel bills.

Around 27% of Scottish households are considered to be in fuel poverty, which is defined as spending more than 10% of income on fuel costs.
