Local councils provide grant funding for people with registered disabilities to make improvements to their home to aid their mobility, this can include the following:
Housing association tenants, private tenants and private homeowners can apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant via the local authority if they or someone they live with is disabled. Landlords can also apply if they have a tenant who is disabled.
If you are registered disabled or are eligible to register as disabled, are on a low income and have savings of less than £6000, then you may be eligible. Our experienced team members can provide you with further details on request.
Your local council may arrange for an Occupational Therapist to visit you at home before making a decision.
If your application is successful, contact us and we’ll arrange to visit you at home to discuss the options for your bathroom renovation.
It depends on which local authority you apply through and how long their processing times are. On average, it can take 12-14 weeks.
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 are approved and successful in receiving preliminary approval for a DFG grant, we can help you with questions relating to planning permission and designs.
