Additional Home Assistance Scheme (AHAS)

In certain circumstances the Trust may be able to help tenants who are over 70 years of age and who have limited mobility with garden maintenance or the decoration of their homes. Such assistance cannot be open ended and is subject to the resources available; any help given is discretionary and is not therefore an entitlement.
