Disability grants for the home

Grants are available to help to provide disabled people with equipment or adaptations to their home to enable them to live independently, or to be cared for at home.

The grant can fund ramps, stair lifts, level-access showers or any other adaptation which helps with access into and around the home.

To decide if you qualify for one of these grants, we will:

  • arrange for an occupational therapist to assess you
  • carry out an assessment of your finances (this is not needed for children under 19 with disabilities)
