Help with adaptations and repairs
Home adaptations for residents with disabilities
HomeKey+ offer advice and support for residents living with disabilities who need changes to their home to make it meet their needs. Our Occupational Therapy Team will refer you for these adaptations where necessary. This could be for minor adaptations or specialist equipment, or for a major adaptation.
Examples of major adaptations include: walk in (level access) showers, ramps, stairlifts, extensions and alterations to provide ground floor facilities such as bedrooms and bathrooms.
Disabled Facilities Grant
A means-tested Disabled Facilities Grant is available to homeowners or privately renting tenants who need adaptations costing more than £1,000, up to a maximum of £30,000. Applications in respect of a disabled child are not means tested. The adaptation must be recommended by an Occupational Therapist.
Before you make an application for a grant through HomeKey+ you will need an Occupational Therapy (OT) assessment, as this is needed to identify the adaptations required and to make sure the grant criteria is met. If you have not already been contacted by an OT or OT Assessor, you will need to request an assessment from the our Community Access Team:
