Equipment and adaptations
Adaptations to your home
Where a minor adaptation has been recommended (for example grab rails, stair rails, half steps), your assessor will order this via our Home Improvement Agency.
Where an adaptation that costs over £500 has been recommended, this is classed as a major adaptation and is funded by a disabled facilities grant (DFG). The DFG is provided where there is an assessed need and can fund adaptations up to a maximum of £30,000.
The DFG is a means-tested grant and we will calculate if you have a contribution to make towards the cost of the works. Children are exempt from the means test and will receive 100% grant funding.
