Grants

A housing adaptation grant is available where changes need to be made to a home to make it suitable for a person with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability or mental health difficulty to live in.

The grant can help you to make changes and adaptations to your home, for example making it wheelchair-accessible, extending it to create more space, adding a ground floor bathroom, toilet or a stairlift and replacing traditional bath with walk-in bath.

Check that you qualify for this scheme

The grant can be paid to people in:

  •  Owner-occupied housing
  •  Houses being purchased from a local authority under the Tenant Purchase Scheme
  •  Private rented accommodation (the duration of your tenancy can affect grant approval)
  •  Accommodation provided under the voluntary housing Capital Assistance and Rental Subsidy schemes
  •  Accommodation occupied by persons living in communal residences
