Can I get a grant to adapt my home?
Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs) are available for owner-occupiers and tenants (subject to landlord approval) following assessment of need by an Occupational Therapist (This link will open in a new window). Grants are available to pay for adapatations to the home such as installing stair-lifts, bathroom adaptations, external ramps, and grab rails.
These grants are means tested and could, in appropriate circumstances, be supplemented by additional funding from Social Services.
Our in-house Care and Repair Agency can check your eligibility and manage the works.
The Agency also provides a range of other services, including advice on safety and security within the home, a handyperson service, entitlement to welfare benefits and information about other agencies or services that may be able to improve your quality of life.
