Grants for home repairs

Depending on your circumstances, we may be able to help you with a loan or a grant to make essential repairs improvements and adaptations to your home. More information about the loans and grants and the conditions is available in our Private sector renewal strategy.

Disabled residents grants

We can provide some  support to disabled residents to make essential changes to their home or move to a new home that meets their needs:

  • Mandatory Disabled Facilities grants can help pay for essential changes to a property that will mean a disabled occupant can stay in their home
  • Discretionary Disabled Facilities grants can help a disabled resident to move home when their current property cannot be altered so that they can stay there

If you would like any further help or advice on the available Financial assistance loans and grants, and conditions for these please contact Blaby District Council's Light Bulb Project.
