We can give advice and may be able to offer financial help to homeowners, private tenants and private landlords with:

  • Adaptations to meet the needs of a disabled person
  • Energy efficiency
  • Repairing or maintaining your home

How do I get help?

Please call Social Work Services on 01324 506400 and ask for a Needs Assessment.

If Social Work Services decide the adaptation work is essential, we will process your Disabled Facilities Grant application and help you get the work done.
