What is a Disabled Facilities Grant?

It’s a grant which helps disabled people live more independently in their own homes by funding adaptions such as:

  • property access
  • stairlifts
  • wheelchair accessible kitchen
  • replacing baths with level access showers 

Can I apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant?

Yes, to begin the process please contact Adult Care. They will arrange an assessment by an Occupational Therapist to establish if any adaptions are required, if they are then a referral will be sent to us to begin the grant process.

Promoting independence: Your Guide to Disabled Facility Grants gives advice on the application process.

Disabled Facility Grants do have a financial assessment which determines if you are required to make a financial contribution. To see if you are eligible for assistance please use our calculator below.
