Are you a home owner?
Homelife Carlisle has various fully funded home improvement grants to help you and your family stay safe and warm, promote independence in your home and to keep you healthy and well in your home.
Safe and Warm Grants can be awarded for home improvements including your heating, electrical upgrades, double-glazing, damp-proofing or to reduce risks and accidents up to £7,500 per household. To qualify a member of your household should have a health condition or disability or be a carer or be over 60 years of age and have savings less than £23,500.
You do not have to be in receipt of a welfare benefit but if you do receive a benefit, including tax credits, then you may qualify. If any works are required to facilitate a hospital discharge then there is no means-test. If you are a private or social housing tenant then you may be eligible for a safe and warm grant for key-safes, draught-proofing or deep-cleans.
UPDATE APRIL 2022: There may be some delay in processing Safe & Warm Grants at the present time due to a staff vacancy. Any new applications will be put on hold until the service resumes in a few months. Hospital Discharge and Dementia grants remain unaffected. Thank you for your understanding.
