Help us to support more vulnerable people
Donate and support FILT

Welcome to FILT

In 1382, a phrase was coined by John Wyclif. A phrase which resonates today and inspires us in our good works: charity begins at home. But to us, it isn’t just charity that begins at home. Warmth begins at home; health begins at home; safety begins at home; happiness begins at home.

It is our mission to ensure that everyone’s home is somewhere to thrive, not just to survive. That is why we partner with Home Improvement Agencies and communities to provide the funding, advice and support to ensure everyday people can make the practical changes and repairs to their homes that they need, that they deserve. From a new boiler to a front door grab-rail; from new windows to simple draught excluders.

Because small changes can have meaningful, life-changing impacts. Because small is powerful. It’s what we do, every day.
