FILT has partnerships with several major energy providers and national charities, we use their financial support to fund work which is carried out by Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs) across England and Wales.
The work carried out varies from a simple repair to a radiator costing a few pounds, to a full replacement of a boiler, and much more in between.
HIAs provide a quality assured and trusted service, assessing the needs of a household and then carrying out work quickly and cost-effectively. They are often able to gain a holistic view and help with the wellbeing of individuals alongside the nuts and bolts.
If you could help us explore further funding opportunities, or would like more information on how you can help please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0300 124 0316.
