    Hello @SusanE one website that may be able to help is Find My Home Improvement Agency (HIA), though it sounds to me like their focus is on adapting or repairing homes, rather than anything that's cosmetic. 

    They may well be able to point you in the right direction though, so please do have a look, and let us know if you need anything further :)

    Do islington council own the home or is it a housing association? The council sometimes have funds for helping with decoration so worth asking the people you pay rent to if they have any grants etc as it is in their interest to keep houses in good repair
