The Council has a Financial Assistance Policy which details the financial assistance we are able to offer.
Unfortunately due to a lack of funding from central government we have, for the foreseeable future, had to suspend offering discretionary grants and loans to assist with repairs to private sector housing.
However if you have a disability, mandatory grants to help provide adaptations to your home are available - for details of how to apply please see our Disabled Facilities Grants page.
