Home Repair Assistance Grants

What is a Home Repair Assistance Grant and who can apply for one?

The main purpose of this grant is to help homeowners whose homes are in disrepair because of wind, rain or damp. Grants are usually given for works such as:

• Replacing loose roof slates or tiles

• Repairs to windows and doors

• Repairs to gutters, downpipes, fascias and bargeboards.

Please see our Housing Assistance Renewal Policy

How do I apply for this grant?

Unfortunately these are grants are  subject to council funding which has not been available for at least the last 5 years. Please bear in mind therefore that there is a long waiting list. If you still wish to be considered for grant funding you must contact the Council for information on the current status.

Anchor Staying Put may also be able to give advice and help you to arrange and carry out the work, they also offer a handyman service for minor repairs. They can be contacted on 01268 638406.
