Please spread the word, see below or click on the link:  http://www.oldham.gov.uk/info/200578/emergencies/1574/flood_resilience_grant

Government grants of up to £5,000 are available for homeowners and businesses that have been flooded as a result of Storm Desmond and Storm Eva to help fund additional flood resilience or resistance measures for their properties.
The resilience grant presents a great opportunity for those who have been flooded to better prepare their homes for future flood events, both to prevent flood water from entering the property and to speed the recovery if it does.


Grants are intended only to fund measures which improve the property’s resilience or resistance to flooding, over and above repairs that would normally be covered by insurance.
