If you have a disability and find it difficult getting in or around your home, or using the facilities within your home, we may be able to give you a grant to help adapt it to suit your needs so that you can continue to live independently.
This grant may help towards the cost of adapting your home so that adults or children with physical disabilities are as independent as possible.
Can I get a disabled facilities grant?
You may apply if you, or someone living in your property, is disabled and:
You can apply as the disabled person, or you can apply on behalf of a disabled person if they are living with you. The person with the disability does not have to be registered as disabled.
If you wish to apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant then please contact Care Direct on 0300 123 2224 and then press option 2 when prompted. All applications are subject to an assessment and recommendation from an Occupational Therapist.
