Grant for partial insulation / excluded area

    I have a couple of questions on internal house insulation.

    1. We did an extension upstairs a number of years ago and fully insulated (internally) the impacted rooms. About 50% of the house is now insulated and we would like to do the rest. Are we eligible for a grant if we aren’t doing the full house?
    2. Our kitchen is a sloped roof extension at the back of the house. The kitchen units reach the ceiling at the lower end of the room so we wouldn’t be able to add a layer of insulation on the ceiling. We were advised that to insulate the ceiling we would need to lift all the roof tiles and add insulation from the outside and that this would be very expensive / labour intensive. Is there any benefit in insulating the external walls if we can’t do the ceiling / roof? Presumably not doing the ceiling would mean we wouldn’t be eligible for grants?

    Many thanks.
