Adaptations - How do I get help?
To get assistance, please call Social Work Services on 01324 506070 and ask for a Needs Assessment. This assessment will help identify your needs and how urgently you require assistance.
If Social Work Services decide that adaptation work is essential, you will be referred to the Private Sector Team who can help you apply for a Mandatory Adaptation Grant, process your application and support you to get the work done.
Further information is available about adaptations and aids and our Care and Repair Service.
