Disabled Facilities Grants

Description:

A Disabled Facilities Grant is a local council grant to help towards the cost of adapting your home to enable you to continue to live there. A grant is paid when the council considers that changes are necessary to meet your needs, and that the work is reasonable and practical.

What we do:

  • Depending on your income, you may need to pay towards the cost of the work to the property. Children Under 18 can be assessed without parental income being taken into account.
  • You or someone living in your property must be disabled. You can also apply for a grant if you’re a landlord and have a disabled tenant.
  • To get an application form, contact the housing or environment health department of your local council.
