Welsh pensioner and widower, Peter, applied for a Personal Grant when the carpet in his bedroom became threadbare, causing a dangerous trip hazard and an unsafe living environment.

Peter now lives on his own in the house he and his wife shared together for over 45 years. Living by himself and on a small pension meant he didn’t have the funds available to install new flooring in his home.

With help from a Personal Grant, Peter hopes the new carpet will make a huge difference and help him feel more confident and safe in his own home. It also means his children have one less thing to worry about, knowing he will be able to enjoy living in a safer home.
