Help for Lining Chimney

My mum had the chimney sweep around and he told her that the chimney needs lining. Fire hazard without lining. She's on pension credit, hence money is short. Is there any organisation that will do this for free or offer a grant?

She had some work elsewhere in the house done by the local council's home improvement scheme, but bunch of useless cowboys who only got the job as they were mates of the bloke in the council. They were meant to line the chimney: never did.

All help and advice welcome.
