Help with adaptations to your home

What are adaptations?

If you are a disabled person, a home adaptation can help to give you more freedom in and around your home, and to access essential facilities within it. Having your home adapted to your needs can mean that you can stay in your home rather than have to move elsewhere. Adaptations are usually the type of works where structural changes are needed to your home such as:

  • Fitting a stair lift
  • Replacing a bath with a walk in shower or fitting an over-bath shower
  • Adapting your home for wheelchair use (e.g. widening doors, installing ramps or a ceiling track hoist).
