TBHC Retrofit Grants

TBHC Retrofit Grants

Our Retrofit Grants are available to Traditional Building Health Check members to support the cost of conservation-standard retrofit to historic and traditional buildings.

The grant is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and by Historic Environment Scotland and will support members to retrofit their properties based on the recommendations in the Energy Efficiency Report.

Retrofit Grants can now be applied for. Funding pot is limited and applications for the grant will close on 30th November 2024. 

Who can apply?

Grants are available for traditional properties within the Stirling City boundary and in Bridge of Allan and Dunblane which are members of the Traditional Buildings Health Check.

You must be a current member of the Traditional Buildings Health Check, and your building must be in a good state of repair. You will have had an Energy Efficiency Report completed.

At the time of your grant payment you will need to have a minimum of 3 months left of your membership.

If you would like information about how to become a TBHC member and our services please email info@traditionalbuildingshealthcheck.org


Our grants are designed to assist with high quality retrofit works installed by competent contractors. This includes: Secondary glazing, draughtproofing, window shutter and storm door insulation and/or repair, and loft insulation.

The grant rate is 70% of eligible works up to a maximum of £7,500 per property. There is a minimum grant of £2,000 so eligible works must exceed £2,850.

There is a finite amount of grant funding available and funds will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Grant applications are presented to a panel of our Trustees for their consideration. They then make the final decision on the grant award.

If you’d like more information about our grants please email callum@scht.org.uk

Please be aware that you should not start works until you have your formal grant award and have signed and returned the grant contract. We do not fund retrospective repair works.

Allow plenty of time to apply for the grant and seek quotes. The grant is not suitable for emergency works or for work that is already in progress.
