    Heya @kid and welcome to the community, how're you today?

    Can we get a bit more information about the type of grant you're looking for?  Once we have that, I'm sure our regulars will be able to advise. :)

    Hi @kid, I'm sorry to hear you have no family to help you.  We have a lot of information on our site here relating to disability grants. Turn2Us also have a great grant search tool that you might find useful too? 

    Do you have anyone there who can support you? And friends? Or a social worker? Are you claiming any benefits?  I'd suggest looking at this benefits calculator to make sure you're receiving all the support.

    I don’t know about grants to decorate. There maybe some help available from your local Authority from the Household Support Fund. Although as it’s coming towards the end of the financial year funding maybe limited. More information here https://www.gov.uk/cost-living-help-local-council
    You can have a look on their website to see if there’s any help available. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Thank you, his name is Alfie. ☺️ Have you tried facebook in your area? Very often people sell things cheap or even give them away. There’s also gumtree too. Always worth a look. 

    If you have no money for food, are you able to get a referral for a food bank? Some information here https://www.trusselltrust.org/get-help/emergency-food/food-vouchers/

    You can't apply for a social worker. What you can do is apply for a care needs assessment from your local Authority. An Occupational Therapist will then contact you to arrange an assessment. From there it will be determined what help/support they maybe able to offer.https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/social-care-and-support-guide/help-from-social-services-and-charities/getting-a-needs-assessment/

    I’m sorry you feel this way as I’ve only tried to help you. I haven’t tagged you. You are likely receiving emails with notifications when someone comments on your thread. 

    I won’t comment further despite trying my best to help up to now.
