INFORMATION TIP - Home repairs, adaptations, flooring and decorating

Many people use our Grants Search to look for help with the costs of decorating, flooring and other home improvements.

Help may be available to you from some charitable funds, if you meet the qualifying rules (eligibility criteria) for their help.

Our Grants Search does not tag charitable fund schemes by terms such as: "carpets", “decorating”, "home improvements" or “home repairs”.

You need to search on all aspects of your circumstances that may be relevant – e.g. occupation (remember to think about the industries you have worked in as well as the jobs you have had), health conditions, nationality.

Once you have a list of charitable funds based on your search, check the profiles for information on who they help and what they give grants for.  

Some charities give grants according to individual need. If the charity's profile doesn't state that grants for home repairs, home improvements, flooring or decorating aren't given, it may be worth contacting any charities that match your circumstances and background to ask if they can help.
