We provide support to residents to maintain independence and live comfortably and safely in their own homes.

Disabled facilities grant

This is a mandatory grant by legislation for works to make homes and facilities accessible to you if you are disabled.

The maximum grant is £30,000.

Read more information about the disabled facilities grant and the eligibility requirements on GOV.UK.

You are eligible to apply if you are a:

  • owner
  • occupant
  • private tenants (who are not council tenants)
  • housing association

If the disabled person is in receipt of any benefits (excluding job seekers allowance), they will be eligible for 100% of the grant.

The grant cannot be given until the disabled person's condition has been assessed and it's decided that the home needs to be adapted.
