Disabled Facilities Grants
Disabled Facilities Grants are available to give disabled persons better access into and around their home, and access to essential facilities within it.
Works may include installing a stairlift or an access ramp, or replacing a bath with a walk-in shower.
The grant is available to home owners and tenants and is subject to a test of the disabled person's resources (except where the works are for a disabled child). If you receive certain benefits, you will not be required to make a contribution towards the cost. The maximum grant is £30,000.
To qualify for a grant the works must be recommended by a Community Occupational Therapist, and must not start until the grant is approved.
