Protect Your Home From Flooding Before Grant Deadline Ends
The Business Emergency Resilience Group urges homes and businesses in the north of England to get flood protected in 2017.
Over 7,000 properties in Cumbria are set to benefit from the Government’s flood grant scheme, which was set up to help protect homes and businesses from flooding. However, many people have yet to take advantage of this funding and as applications are currently only accepted until the end of March, time is running out for those eligible candidates.
The UK’s leading responder, Adler & Allan, are delivering advice, support and flood resilience measures in the region in collaboration with the Business Emergency Recovery Group (BERG). They are urging those entitled to make their claim in order to ensure their buildings are protected for any future flooding events.
Grants are available for up to the value of £5000, for properties affected by Storm’s Desmond and Eva, which hit Cumbria and parts of Scotland between the 5th and 22nd December 2015. The money will go towards surveying a property to identify risk and the implementation of specialist flood protection measures to mitigate flood water entering properties.
The company has three dedicated offices in Keswick, Carlisle and Kendal, with 10 installation teams in the area focused on improving the flood resilience of homes and businesses that have benefitted from the Government’s grant. Take a look at the facts below and find out if you are eligible for a Protection Grant.
