Does your home need essential repairs, or is it a danger to your health and safety? We may be able to help, especially if you are over 60.
If you are eligible, we can offer you an interest-free loan through our agents Manchester Care and Repair. They will agree affordable monthly repayments with you. They can also tell you how to get free independent advice about your loan.
If you are over 60 but not eligible for financial assistance, they could help you find someone to do the work.
Can you apply?
You can apply if:
- you live in the area covered by Manchester City Council (see map); and
- you own your home and have lived there for at least five years.
We give priority where there's an urgent risk to health and safety, and to people who get certain benefits.
- if you are over 60: contact Manchester Care and Repair
- if you are under 60: get advice about home improvement assistance
