Care and Repair funding for those on low incomes

Older or disabled homeowners on low incomes who own and stay in a property with Council Tax band A – C may be eligible for financial assistance through Care and Repair Scotland. 
This fund is intended to enable older (aged 60+) and disabled people to stay in their own homes and includes help to ensure your home is fire safe. 

Those in receipt of the guaranteed element of pension credit or Employment Support Allowance should get in touch with us by emailing careandrepair@aberdeenshire.gov.uk 

Further information on Care and Repair Scotland is at: http://www.careandrepairscotland.co.uk/ 

For advice on making sure your home is fire safe in time for new fire alarms standards which will be legally required in every home in Scotland by February 2022, visit: https://www.mygov.scot/home-fire-safety
