The Fund is designed to cover the capital cost of installing a Fire Alarm System in buildings that meet the following criteria:

  • be in the private sector
  • be over 17.70 metres in height
  • have an unsafe cladding system
  • have a waking watch in place where these costs have been passed on to Leaseholders

The Fund will remain open until 10th December 2021 and continues to be administered on a first come, first served, basis.

The balance of the original £30m pledged will be used, however a further £5m has also been pledged.  The entirety of the additional £5m has been allocated to London.
