This scheme is designed to help householders within the Parish with the cost of replacing or repairing larger domestic appliances and a significant number of other devices. It is open to all primary households within the Parish of Ellingham.
Supported Devices and Trusts Contribution
Appliances must be new and obtained from a “proper” retailer. Only one claim per household per 12 months.
Trusts Contribution £100
(if actual cost is less than £100 then actual cost is paid)
|Cooker or Range||100|
|Hob and/or Oven||100|
Purchase of a new energy efficient appliance
Any householder who buys a new device or appliance which is on the list above can submit a receipt for the replacement to the Trust who will make a retrospective payment towards the purchase of the appliance.
Only one application for support can be made by a household within a 12 month period. The device purchased must be used exclusively within a primary residence within the Parish. The applicant must agree not to sell on the device for a period of a year. Whilst the choice of the appliance is entirely a matter for the householder the Trust encourages that significant weight is given to purchasing a device which is highly efficient. (“A” rating wherever possible).
Repair of an existing appliance
The Trust does not want to encourage replacement of appliances where repair may be a better option both from the point of view of householders and the environment. Therefore the Trust will pay the cost of the repair up to a maximum £100.
Please Note: This scheme is planned to run for at least 3 years to avoid the need to bring forward planned replacement of a serviceable domestic appliance.
Case Study : Jane bought a new washing machine and completed a Domestic Appliance Scheme grant application.
“Just a short note to say the £100 domestic appliance grant that we have recently received (and very promptly I must say) is much appreciated. Please pass on my thanks to the Trust.”
