What is a Disabled Facilities Grant?

This short video explains:

  • about assessments

A Disabled Facilities Grant can help provide safe access into and around the home. You may be eligible for a Disabled Facilities Grant to help with the cost of making adaptations to your home – depending on your situation, including your financial circumstances.

Grants cannot be awarded for works already carried out and therefore where you are seeking a DFG you will need to wait for the official DFG approval notice before commencing the works.

The maximum grant available to individuals is £30,000.

Typical adaptations would include:

  • access in to and out of the home (for example a wheelchair ramp)
  • access to bathroom/ toilet, bath or shower or wash basin
  • provision of facilities for preparing and cooking food
  • adaptations to bathrooms
  • ceiling hoists
  • stair lifts
  • other types of appropriate adaptations will also be considered
