Entitlement to grants
Hi i am new here. I was just wondering if I would be entitled to a grant to have a summer house put in my back garden I will explain why I am asking this. I have spent the last 14 years in and out of hospital because of anorexia I have three teenagers, I have recently spent two years in supportive accomadation receiving 24 hours support, and in December last year I took the next step in moving into my own flat and seeing my family in small periods of time. I am now slowly transitioning to move home fulltime, this will be a very challenging time for me and my family but a friend of mine mentioned she knows someone who received a grant for a summer house. I will use this as a quiet place to be able to shut away and still have my SAFE place where I can stay ontop of my mental health and feel like I have somewhere safe and I can call my own. If you could sign post me in the rights direction for help finacially towards this I would be most grateful.
