Default Grant/Help to replace broken boiler

Hi, My mother in law is 76, owns her own home but is not on any benefits other than her state pension. A few months ago her combi boiler packed up and she has only just told me becasue she can't affort to get it fixed/replaced.

does anyone have any advice as to how I can help her get funding to replace it? the unit is about 20 years old so probably not repairable.

Welcome to the forum.

20 year old boilers are actually much simpler and easier to repair the modern boilers.

I would see if you can find a local plumber and get him to have a look.
