If your home, business or charity has been flooded due to an adverse weather event, you may be eligible for grant support.
Grants of £750 are available for households and £3,000 for businesses/registered charities to help cover clean-up and other recovery costs, including:
- clean up equipment - generators, dehumidifiers, lighting, brushes, power sprayers
- building and stock security
- costs associated with getting IT and electricity up and running
- essential fixtures and fittings

We cannot provide support for any repair or other building works or replacement of stock that property/flood insurance should cover. We are unable to provide grants for second homes or empty homes.
