Any help for replacement oil boiler on benefits?

Our 14 yer old oil boiler has finally died and needs replacing. But, it's going to cost around £5K and we receive Guaranteed pension credit and can't afford this. No mains gas where we live.
I was hoping we could get help from the governments ECO scheme but from what I've read, this only covers gas boilers, plus our electricity supplier isn't part of the scheme. I've also checked on the Simple Energy Advice site, and there's nothing local available that I can find.
I'd even consider converting to Calor gas if that would mean we'd get help with the boiler but not sure that would be the case. Can anyone please advise as I really don't know where to turn to for help.
