The following grants may be available to you:
Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG)
This is a mandatory grant to help towards the cost of adapting a
disabled person’s home so that he/she can continue to live there
and have access to the normal household facilities. The grant
is available to owner-occupiers and private tenants who have been
referred by the Council’s occupational therapist. A landlord
can also apply on his/her tenant’s behalf. The maximum grant
is £30,000 but it is means-tested so the disabled person may need
to make a contribution depending on his/her income and that of any
partner (except where the adaptations are for a child).
Keep Warm Grant
A home owner or tenant of a property may apply for a grant
up to a maximum of £7,500 per dwelling. This grant is intended to
provide a decent level of warmth in the home and improve its
overall energy efficiency (known as a “SAP rating”). Works
will typically include the installation of a more efficient central
heating system and, where possible, insulation works.
If you or someone you know could benefit from a grant or for
