Home Support Grant

The Home Support Grant is a new grant scheme from Local Authorities helping applicants to remain independent in their home. Applicants who meet the income criteria and have savings of under £6,000 can apply for support to help with their home environment, security warmth and affordability and personal safety.

With grants of up to £5,000 available per household, residents will be able to access practical housing support that makes a positive impact on people’s lives and the local health economy.
