If you or someone living in your property is permanently disabled you may qualify for a disabled facilities grant (DFG) towards the cost of providing adaptations and facilities to enable the disabled person to continue to live there. Such grants are given by the council under Part I of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and are means tested except in the case of adaptations for children. If you are interested in adaptations for a disabled child then please also refer to the children with disabilities information.
Before making an application you will normally have received an occupational therapist assessment to confirm the work will meet your needs and is necessary and appropriate. For some medical conditions the occupational therapist will need to seek advice from the disabled person's consultant.
If you don't already have an Occupational Therapist you can contact the OT social helpdesk by calling 0300 456 0111 or by emailing email@example.com.
