Aids & Adaptations

Adaptations are things which could help you in or around your home and assist you with your independence. There are two kinds of adaptations – minor and major.

Minor adaptations

Minor adaptations are small items such as lever taps, grab rails and handrails for stairs.

Major Adaptations

Major adaptations are larger scale works such as wet rooms, stair lifts, ramps for wheelchair users & adapted kitchens.

Charges for Major Adaptations

All major adaptations are means tested and if eligible will be provided by the Disabled Facilities Grant. Please note: you may need to contribute towards the cost of the works.

Further Information

All minor & major adaptation requests would be referred to Social Services Contact Centre for an initial assessment by the Primary Assessment Team for equipment or minor adaptations. If a major adaptation is required a further assessment will be carried out by the Complex Assessment Team.
