Decorating Scheme

Seaside Homes properties are decorated to a high standard during refurbishment, but we recognise that this standard is not permanent and can be difficult to maintain for some. To help those of our tenants who are on a low income or are restricted by disability or frailty, Seaside Homes has a Decorating Scheme to provide a little help with maintaining your home.

Option 1 – Decorating Vouchers

This option is for tenants who are able to do the work themselves or have a friend or family member who can do it for them. Decorating vouchers will be provided to help purchase the materials.

Voucher amount will vary according to the size and condition of the room you wish to decorate.  (Vouchers are only valid for B&Q and can only be used to purchase decorating materials and equipment)

Please note, Seaside Homes may arrange an inspection visit following completion of works.  Alternatively, before and after photographs may be requested.

Option 2 – Decorating Assistance

(only open to those particularly disadvantaged through disability or frailty)

All applications via this option will be decided on a case by case basis dependent on individual requests and circumstances.

Please note, this option is designed to assist those whose circumstances prevent them from maintaining their own decoration, who live alone and have no friends or family in the Brighton Area who can carry out works for them.

Who can apply?

  • Only one application for one room can be made in a 12 month period per tenancy
  • The Decorating Scheme is available to all Seaside Homes Tenants, except for those who have indicated their intention to quit the property or are involved in court proceedings with Seaside Homes where judgement has not yet been determined
  • All applications will be dealt with in order of receipt until the annual budget has been spent or allocated, unless in exceptional circumstances

How to Apply

If you are interested in this scheme, please complete the contact form below.

Upon receipt of your application our Tenant Engagement Officer will contact you as soon as they are able and take you through a short application form.

A site visit may then be arranged, if necessary in order to complete the application process.

Each application will be considered on it’s own merits taking into account your personal circumstances and the assistance you are requesting.
