Disabled Bathroom Grants, Council Funded Support

What is a Disabled Facilities Grant?

Councils offer Disabled Facilities Grant support for people who have registered disabilities so that they can make their homes more accessible and usable. These changes may include:

  • Widen doors and install ramps
  • Improve access to facilities & rooms – e.g., stairlifts or a downstairs bathroom
  • Provide a heating system suitable for your needs
  • Adapt heating or lighting controls to make them easier to use

Who Qualifies To Apply For A Grant?

Housing association residents, private landlords, and private homeowners can apply to the municipal government for a Disabled Facilities Grant whether they or someone they live with is disabled. Landlords that have a disabled tenant may still apply.

Am I Eligible?

If you are disabled or eligible to register as disabled, have a low wage, with assets of less than £6000, you might be eligible. Additional information will be given upon request by our experienced team members.

How Do I Apply?

Your local council should assist you with your application for a Disabled Facilities Grant. You can find more information here.

What Will Happen Next?

Before you make your decision, your council will be able to arrange an occupational therapist to visit your home. Then once your application is approved, contact our team so we can arrange to meet with you at home and discuss your bathroom renovation options.

How Long Would It Take to Approve a Grant?

It depends on which local authority you apply to and how long it takes for them to accept your application. On average, it takes 12-14 weeks, but more complicated installations can take longer.
