Who we are

Aims and adaptations to enable you to remain living in your own home.

Description

The Disabled Facilities Grant is for making changes to the properties of people with disabilities to support independent living. This includes things such as stair lifts, ramps and showers, but does not cover decorative work. You can read more about Disabled Facilities Grants on the government website.

The very first step is to have an assessment by Social Services. You can then apply if you are assessed as being in need of major adaptations to your home and are:

  • A disabled person, who is an owner occupier or a tenant - An owner occupier or tenant who has a disabled person living in your home
  • A¬†landlord, on behalf of a disabled tenant.

If after an assessment of your needs, an occupational therapist indicated that your referral is a priority the disabled Facilities Grant Team will contact you within five working days.

In all other cases, due to the high number of requests we receive for this kind of assistance, the current waiting time is approximately 14 months.
