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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Did you know that we can deduct the VAT on our products and installations if you are disabled or over 60 and require a bathroom adaptation to help you live more comfortably? If this applies to you, talk to the surveyor during the home visit and they will happily advise.
If you’re accepted for your Disabled Facilities Grant and have received your provisional approval, we can assist you with planning permission and any design questions.
