You may be able to get a 25% disability-related reduction in your domestic rates if your home has one of the following features:
You will also need to show that this feature is essential, or of major importance, to the well being of the person who is disabled. You must be able to show that the room or space is needed because of the person's disability and that they would not need it if they were not disabled. In this sense the room or space must be 'extra'. However, you do not need to have specially adapted a room or to have built a new room.
This allowance is not means tested. Therefore you do not need to provide information about your income and savings to be eligible.
To find out more and to apply for the reduction go to NI Direct's Disabled Persons Allowance guide.
