Disabled Adaptations

Disabled Facilities Grant

If you are disabled you might benefit from having your home adapted to better suit your needs.

There are a range of adaptations that could improve access into and around your home such as:

  • Ramps for wheelchairs (not scooters).
  • Stairlifts and through-floor lifts.
  • Level Access Showers.
  • Essential ground floor facilities.

If you are a tenant, especially of a Housing Association, your landlord might be able to make the necessary adaptations to your home and you should contact them in the first instance.

If you own the property or your landlord is unable to help, you might qualify for a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG).

Disabled Facilities Grant are specifically intended to help with the cost of disabled adaptations.
