Home Improvement Agency Service

What does it do?

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2006 creates a new Scheme of Assistance for housing purposes, based on the principle that individual owners have primary responsibility for maintaining their properties in good condition, but with assistance available where necessary.

The Act introduces new powers for local authorities to re-focus financial assistance from repair and improvement grants to include
standard and subsidised loans.

Who it is for?

The core target group for Care and Repair services is older owner occupiers aged 60 and over. Some Care & Repair services extend this client group to include owners of any age group with physical or mental disabilities, private rented sector and crofting tenants (particularly in the Highlands and Islands).
