How to apply

To apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant contact Livewell Southwest (adults) on 01752 668000 or Children's Integrated Disability Service (children) on 01752 307264 for an assessment by an occupational therapist.

You can apply for a grant if you're:

  • an owner or the tenant of a property
  • a landlord on behalf of a disabled person
  • parents of a disabled child

If you receive a means tested benefit or the grant is for a child you'll get a full grant to cover the cost of the works. The maximum grant available is £30,000.

If you don't receive a means tested benefit, you'll be assessed to see if you've got to contribute towards the cost of the work.
