Adaptations, Improvements and Repairs

Disabled Facilities Grants

Disabled Facilities Grants are a source of funding towards works that help people remain in their own home through the adaptation of their property. Typical works might be a stairlift to access a first floor bathroom or a level access shower for a person of limited mobility.

In order to know if you are eligible, the first step is an assessment of need through the Occupational Therapy Service who act for the County Council. If you are eligible then Care and Repair Worcestershire Agency will help guide you through the process.

The works are limited to what is necessary, we will also consider whether the works are appropriate to the property.
