How much does it cost? And what is the payback?

It depends on lots of things. But if your loft is currently uninsulated, you'll save around 25% on your heating bill. Installation costs depend on the material and the surface of your loft. Typically for 20cm wool insulation, for a typical loft, the price ranges between £200 and £400.

Can we do it ourselves or do we need to get people in?

It is pretty easy to do it yourself. But if you aren't comfortable, you should use experts. Flat Roof? Cold vs warm loft: read more here.
