Grants can be used for assistance with repairs, improvements and adaptations in your home. You can also apply for specific grants to help you if you’ve been a victim of burglary and/or domestic violence.
The Council is mandated to provide Disabled Facilities Grants (also known as DFGs) under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, where certain conditions are met.
In addition to these grants, the council has discretionary powers under the Regulatory Reform (Housing Assistance) (England and Wales) Order 2002 to give assistance, grants and services for a wider range of works and adaptations.
To use these discretionary powers, the council has published a policy setting out how we will use them to help our residents remain independent and safe in their own home.
