Solid Wall Insulation grants ??

Does anyone know of any companies that are providing insulation under the grant system for solid walls ?? I seem to have hit a solid 9" brick wall trying to find anyone that does.

I meet all the criteria for the full grant but can't find anyone to install the required insulation :(

The goverment and industry in general are pushing the whole insulation issue and giving everyone (who qualifies) grants of £2700 to install insulation and heating measures in houses that do not come up to scratch.

It seems mad that it is impossible to find a company to install insulation under the grant scheme in a house with solid walls (such as mine) when they loose more heat and energy than a non insulated cavity wall. You would think that they would make these properties a priority.

After looking through the various sources on the net and ringing round it turned out that Warm Front are the main goverment reccomended agency for dealing with grants and insulation.

I called them up and their surveyer came round to have a look, done his calculations and said my house has a SAP rating of 1, the scale is 1 to 120, 1 being worst possible case. Anyhow they said that they don't instal non cavity wall insulation and they dont do flat roof insulation.

This seem very poor when I have read that a huge percentage of UK housing stock has solid walls and they are being brushed under the carpet as they are classed as "hard to heat"
