  1. I am looking to use the government grant of £5000 to replace the doors and windows in our 3bef semi. I am 73years of age and my wife is 30years my junior who claim PIP due to her disabilities. We have a son 4years old. Apart from the new Coronavirus grant if you are aware that there are any other grants for low income families I would be appreciative of your knowledge. Please call me Monday afternoon. Thank you Keith
