If you or someone living in your property is disabled, you may qualify for a disabled facilities grant.
The disabled facilities grant goes towards the cost of works needed to help a disabled person to remain living more independently in their home.
The maximum grant available is £30,000 for the following improvements:
The disabled facilities grant is available to owner occupiers and tenants, however, certain conditions apply.
The grant is means-tested unless the disabled person is a child, and you may have to make a contribution towards the cost of the works, depending on your financial circumstances.
If you are a council tenant, the council will carry out whatever works are needed (or move you to a more suitable home) and you will not be expected to apply for a means-tested grant. Similar arrangements are in place for most housing association tenants.
