making your home safer for you
improving the heating system in your home
You can use the grant to:
install access ramps
widen door ways

How to apply
Contact Adult Social Care to ask for an assessment to provide you with advice and an eligibility assessment in your own home. If you’re eligible you’ll be referred to your local district or borough council.
You or the property owner can apply for the grant as long as you intend to live in the property for 5 years (the ‘grant period’).
