The Private Sector Improvement Service (PSIS) is responsible for our Home Improvement Grants programme.  The aim of the programme is:
  • to target grant aid at private sector housing, to ensure the continual improvement of housing standards in the private sector in support of urban and rural regeneration;
  • to help vulnerable people, including people with disabilities, living in the private sector, to live safely in their homes;
  • to assist owners of private sector dwellings to improve the exterior structure of their properties through Group Repair Schemes; and
  • through the management of the Houses in Multiple Occupation sector, facilitate the provision of affordable housing for some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in society, including benefit claimants, those on low incomes, students and foreign migrant workers
