Funding work to your home

Regrettably, grants are no longer generally available for home improvements and repairs, except for most home adaptations for people with disabilities.

However, Care and Repair can provide you with information and advice if you are planning to carry out improvements or repairs to your home.

You may also find it useful to read our new scheme of assistance, which explains the range of information, help and advice available to private homeowners.
