EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Home Energy Assistance Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 2009 (“the principal Regulations”) which make provision for the making of grants to improve the thermal insulation and energy efficiency of dwellings and to provide advice to reduce or prevent the wastage of energy in a dwelling.

Regulation 2 amends regulation 6 of the principal Regulations to extend eligibility to applicants who are, or who live with a partner who is, in receipt of carer’s allowance. Carer’s allowance is payable under section 70 of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992 (c.4) to persons who are engaged in caring for a severely disabled person, subject to certain conditions set out in that section and in the Social Security (Invalid Care Allowance) Regulations 1976, as amended (S.I. 1976/409).
