  1. How do I get an assessment for a grant

The purpose of a Disabled Facilities Grant is to enable disabled people to have access in and around their home.

About the grant

We aim to help people with disabilities to continue to live in their own homes where this is feasible.

A Disabled Facilities Grant can help, for example, to pay for a ramp and handrails (or a step lift), to widen doorways or replace a bath with a shower.  The grant is "means tested" and your income and savings will be taken into account to decide whether or not a grant can be paid and what level of contribution (if any) you would need to find.  A member of the adaptations team can explain about this in greater detail. You can apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant (or DFG) as an owner or a tenant of a property.

The process is explained split into 9 Stages:

Stage 1 Letting us know about your situation
Stage 2: The Assessment
Stage 3: Applying for the grant.
Stage 4: Working Drawing stage (not applicable in all cases)
Stage 5: Estimate stage
Stage 6: Approval of grant
Stage 7: Work in progress
Stage 8: Completion of grant work
Stage 9: After the grant is complete
