Disabled Facilities Grant

What is it?

A Disabled Facilities Grant is a local authority grant to help towards the cost of adapting your home to enable you to continue to live there. Some examples would include providing additional bathroom or kitchen facilities, or providing easier access to rooms around your home.

Can I get it?

Assistance is provided at the discretion of your local authority. Your home will be assessed by an occupational therapist to see what you might need.

How do I claim?

The process for applying for the Disabled Facilities Grant is usually started by your GP or social worker. However, you can find out more by contacting your local authority.
