Vul­ner­a­ble res­i­dents of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang have been of­fered ad­vice on how to stay warm this win­ter.

A scheme set up by the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment is of­fer­ing as­sis­tance to home­own­ers and pri­vate sec­tor ten­ants strug­gling to heat their home.

Those who have lived in their prop­erty for at least six months and who meet the qual­i­fy­ing cri­te­ria will be able to ap­ply for the ser­vice.

Warmer Homes Scot­land is de­signed to help vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple make their homes warmer a n d m o re com­fort­able by in­stalling a range of energy- sav­ing mea­sures that in­clude wall in­su­la­tion, loft in­su­la­tion, draught-proof­ing, cen­tral heat­ing and re­new­ables.

The mea­sures of­fered will de­pend on a sur­vey of the prop­erty.

Peo­ple who have had as­sis­tance through a gov­ern­ment pro­gramme be­fore can still ap­ply for Warmer Homes Scot­land.

As­ses­sors will rec­om­mend mea­sures suit­able for the prop­erty, in­clud­ing a range of in­su­la­tion and heat­ing mea­sures, and in most cases costs will be met by the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment.
