Disabled Facilities Grant

Due to Coronavirus (Covid - 19) measures, we are unable to safely progress all adaptations.

Adaptations which are currently underway and have contractors on site will not be affected.

Adaptations that have not yet started will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Thank you for bearing with us.

A Disabled Facilities Grant can help with:

  • Stair lifts
  • Level access showers
  • Widening doors
  • Installing ramps
  • Through the floor lifts
  • Adapting heating/lighting facilities
  • Safe access to gardens

How to apply

To apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant contact Livewell Southwest (adults) or Gateway (Children) on 01752 668000 or 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.
