If you are finding it hard to manage in your current house or flat, you may want to consider altering or adapting it to suit your needs.
- You can get information, advice and help on all aspects of making alterations to your home from your local council's housing department.
- You may be eligible for a Disabled Facilities Grant from your local council to pay for alterations. Grants are means-tested and applicants must have a permanent and substantial disability in order to be considered. An Occupational Therapy assessment is required to support the request for a grant.
- You could search our Community Directory for house or garden help.
- If your home needs major adaptations to make it suitable for your needs, you may wish to consider other housing options.
