Disabled residents grants
We can provide some support to disabled residents to make essential changes to their home or move to a new home that meets their needs:
- Mandatory Disabled Facilities grants can help pay for essential changes to a property that will mean a disabled occupant can stay in their home
- Discretionary Disabled Facilities grants can help a disabled resident to move home when their current property cannot be altered so that they can stay there
