Where to get the help for your Home Improvement assistance?
1) Your Local Authority: (find yours) can assist you with the cost of repairs to your home, improvements needed to your home and/or adaption’s that may be needed, such as installing a stair lift in an elderly person’s home, or adapting a home for a recently disabled person, so they can continue to live in their own home and surroundings – This is specifically known as the Disability Facilities Grant.
Your income and any savings you may have will affect how much level of Grant you may get and the payment of any grant from your Local Authority is at the discretion of the Local Council.
Your Local Authority can provide persons with a Grant or a Low-cost Loan; they can also assist in releasing some of the equity in your home to help with repairs, adaptions and/or improvement. Your Local Authority can also simply provide impartial advice and information on repairs.
