We provide information and assistance to help home owners live in a home that is safe, secure and free from health risks.
Please see our Homeowner's Booklet (pdf, 0.7 MB)(opens new window)for more advice on maintaining your home.
We no longer receive a grant budget from central government, except Disabled Facilities Grants, and most assistance is given as a low cost loan. The Disabled Facilities Grant is a grant to help adapt the home of disabled or older residents so that they can continue to live independently in their own home.
We accept loan enquiries to help homeowners on low incomes to carry out essential repairs to their home. For most homeowners enquiries for financial assistance from us are administered by WE Care and Repair on our behalf and in line with our Financial Assistance Schedule (revised February 2014) (pdf, 196 KB)(opens new window). This assistance is in the form of a loan and we have a range of products available to suit the financial circumstances of the eligible households.
If you wish to make an enquiry please contact WE Care and Repair by telephone on 0300 323 0700 or by email email@example.com. Please note all assistance offered under this policy is limited to sufficient budget being available at the time of your application.
Further information about this and other services on the WE Care and Repair website.
All our low cost loans are administered by our partner Wessex Home Improvement Loans.
The Private Housing Service deals directly with enquiries for loans for specialist areas of work such as:
- bringing empty properties back into use
- PRC repairs and
- loans to private landlords in in areas where Discretionary Licensing Schemes have been designated.
Please call or email if you wish to make an enquiry relating to these schemes.
