If your home doesn't meet your needs

Advice on adaptations to your home

You may be able to have changes done to your home to help you get around if you are elderly or disabled. This could be anything from level access showers to hand rails.

The kinds of adaptations you can get depend on your circumstances. If you rent your home, you will need to contact your landlord or housing association to discuss your needs with them.

If you live in a housing association property and feel your home is no longer suitable, you may also consider a tenant transfer.

Help for home owners

If you own your home or have a mortgage on it, you may also be entitled to financial assistance which includes a Disabled Facilities Grant.

For minor repairs and adaptations, you might want to consider using our Handyperson+ service (over 65s only) or for larger changes you could be eligible for a Healthy Homes Loan.
