About Nest

Welsh Government Warm Homes, which includes the Arbed and Nest schemes, provides funding for energy efficiency improvements to low income households and those living in deprived communities across Wales.

It supports the Welsh Government’s commitments to:

  • reduce climate change
  • help eradicate fuel poverty
  • boost economic development and regeneration in Wales

Both schemes consider a whole house approach to home energy efficiency improvements. This helps to tackle harder to treat homes where the impact of fuel poverty tends to be most severe.
