Grants and loans are available for the repair of an eligible building and its building services including rewiring and heating projects. We also offer grants and loans for installing new facilities like toilets and kitchens.

Historic churches and chapels of any Christian denomination in Cambridgeshire are eligible, provided they are likely to remain in use for public worship and be properly maintained for the foreseeable future.
