    Speak to your Local Authority and they may have some funding available for this. Some social/council housing landlords also give vouchers for decorating but I know not all of them do so check with yours. When I moved into a social housing property in January there was nothing available from mine.

    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.

    Do ask but don't get your hopes up, my LA offer decorating vouchers but the value never changes, so it'll buy 2 tins of paint at best.

    lol seems like things haven't changed in many years. I remember back about 10 years or so ago when I moved into a social housing property. I was given a voucher for £50 but the places I could use it was very limited and the cost was a lot higher and could only get 2 tins. It wasn't even enough to decorate my living room at the time.

    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.

    Yes I believe my LA also has limits on where the voucher can be used.
