Individuals living in social housing in England could receive funding assistance in order to undertake home improvement projects under new proposals announced by the government.

Launching the Tenant Cashback scheme, housing minister Grant Shapps stated that there are millions of Britons living in such properties who take pride in looking after their homes.

Currently, it is estimated that landlords spend a total of £4 billion a year on repairs and maintenance, with much of this going towards simple tasks such as painting and basic plumbing that could be completed by residents themselves.

"Doing your own DIY or choosing a local handyman to do the work will allow tenants to pocket any savings they make," Mr Shapps said.

However, those looking to undertake such projects may like to heed advice that was recently offered by Andrew Leech, director of the National Home Improvement Council, who explained that jobs must be done properly, as poor work could have serious consequences later.
