Repairs assistance

Home improvement and repair assistance

Due to financial constraints, the council will not be taking any new enquiries for grants (except Disabled Facilities Grants and  Discretionary Disabled Facilities Grants) but will continue to accept loan enquiries. The loans being offered are subsidised to provide low cost finance with low rates of interest for the term of the loan for home owners. Loans can be provided for disabled adaptation should a person not quality for a Disabled Facilities grant.

Who provides the loan?

The council is working with Lendology CIC (opens new window) (a Community Development Finance Institution)  to provide finance to home owners for essential maintenance, adaptations and improvement works to their home. Loans are discretionary and are usually made available to low income groups particularly the elderly, disabled and other vulnerable households.
