Our Scheme of Assistance outlines when assistance is available and the types of assistance offered to help homeowners, landlords and private tenants:

  • Adapt their home (to meet the needs of a person with a disability)
  • Maintain or repair their home
Scheme of Assistance

We are in the process of updating our Scheme of Assistance.  In the meantime, please note:

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.
