Disabled Facilities Grant is available for adaptations to a home (e.g. access ramps, ceiling-track hoists, house extensions, level-access showers, polyflor showers, stairlifts, through-floor lifts), where an occupational therapist has assessed a disabled person as being in need.
Assistance is in the form of a means-tested grant of up to £30,000.
The disabled person must intend to occupy the home for five years from the completion of the works.
For owner occupiers, the amount of grant over £5,000 (excluding fees) is repayable if the home is disposed of within ten years of the completion of the works, subject to a maximum repayment of £10,000.
