Safe and Warm Grants
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.
Dementia Friendly Grants
We have non means-tested grants up to the value of £3,000 to help people with dementia or memory problems make changes to the home that would support them to live in their own home safely and for longer. Examples of measures may be:
- Colour and contrast decorating
- Carbon monoxide/ cold / heat alarms
- Safety flooring
- Key- safes
- Digital technology
