In most of the projects we are responsible for, the aim is to provide more affordable warmth in people’s homes, and our role is that of a Managing Agent.
This means we manage the end-to-end installation and quality inspection of heating, insulation and energy efficiency improvements in our customers’ homes. In most cases, we will arrange for a home survey to look at what work needs to be done, before discussing it in detail at a technical survey. We will arrange for a local, registered and accredited sub-contractor to carry out the work. After it is complete, we will typically arrange an independent inspection to ensure that all the work meets our high safety and quality standards.
Formed in 2015, Warmworks is a joint venture partnership between three organisations with considerable experience and understanding of our industry and the customers we serve. These organisations are Energy Saving Trust (EST), Everwarm and Changeworks. We are committed to providing affordable warmth to homes, families and communities across the country.
We deliver a range of contracts across the country, from the Orkney Islands to South East England, aimed at helping people to manage their energy costs by improving the energy efficiency of their home. We are also the Managing Agent of the Scottish Government’s national fuel poverty scheme, Warmer Homes Scotland. Since the scheme was launched in 2015, we have supported more than 27,000 people across Scotland to stay warm in their home, save against their energy bills and make their home more energy efficient.

We are the Managing Agent for most of the projects we deliver. This means we oversee the installation of heating, energy efficiency and insulation work in our customers’ homes, from the initial survey where we’ll discuss the measures that could be installed, right through to a final inspection to make sure everything meets our rigorous safety and quality standards.
We recognise that we have a role in supporting the communities in which we work and live. This has meant working to create jobs and training opportunities, supporting communities with approaches tailored to their needs, and leaving a real, lasting legacy. Since we were founded in 2015, we have supported the creation of more than 150 apprenticeships in our supply chain, more than 700 jobs, and over 3,000 training opportunities. For more information about how we support local communities, visit the Our communities page of our website.
We manage a network of more than 20 registered and accredited sub-contractors, known as our supply chain, who help us provide a first-class service to our customers. Each sub-contractor is continually assessed by a specially designed performance management system. The aim of this is to help reassure our customers that they will receive high quality workmanship, that the people carrying out work in their home are professional and trustworthy, and that our sub-contractors are able to deal with any questions or concerns that might arise.
We are dedicated to providing an inclusive service that takes account of our customers’ individual needs. We understand that some of our customers will often need extra support. Our service has been specifically designed to allow us to meet these needs wherever we can.
