Working with Older and Disabled Homeowners and Private Tenants to meet their housing needs

GABLE, is a Shelter Northern Ireland project, funded by Supporting People and working in partnership with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. This service was established to give advice and assistance to older and disabled homeowners/private tenants who qualify for NIHE housing grants.

The project has been in operation for over 20 years and in that time we have expanded the service and now work with

  • The Warm Homes Scheme providing insulation grants
  • The Electrical Safety Council providing Minor Electrical Works grants

GABLE staff can also help you check out your benefit entitlements through A2B (Access to Benefits), including rates relief/rebate.

The GABLE team has over 30 years combined experience of the grants system, and is confident we can offer a high quality, no cost service, which ultimately reduces the financial and personal time contribution of our clients.

About our Service:

GABLE provides a service primarily to older and disabled clients who own their own home or live in private rentals, however we are happy to help anyone. We provide a comprehensive service to all applicants, from initial enquiries into the various grants available right through to work completion, and in many cases our service continues beyond the work having been completed.

GABLE guarantees a friendly, helpful service to all our clients.

The services we offer include:

  • Pre-application information and advice on NIHE housing grants and other grant schemes
  • Support and help right through the grants procedure (from preliminary enquiry to work complete)
  • A dedicated caseworker who will look after you throughout
  • Assistance with form filling and submission of essential documents
  • Technical advice and support
  • Help with finding Architects, Contractors, Electricians, etc
  • Help when organising works
  • Home visits
  • Liaison with Architects, Contractors, Electricians, Building Control, Planning Department & the various Grants departments on your behalf
  • And much, much more……
