  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Internal wall insulation
  • External wall insulation

Home Repair Grants for Landlords

All government home repair grants available can apply to both homeowners and private tenants, as long as they have permission from their landlord (because they have the home ownership).

This means landlords can apply for grants for home improvements to improve the living conditions for their tenants as long as the tenants meet the eligibility requirements (such as universal credit, pension credit, housing benefit and council tax exemption).

Home Repair Assistance Grant for Disabled Individuals

There is a specific government home repair program that can help disabled people, which is called the Disabled Facilities Grant. By contacting your local authority, they can help you live a better life with adaptations to your home to make it easier for you as a disabled person.

The disabled facilities grant is the main disability grants scheme the local council offers, but there are other government schemes that do still target disabled people.
