Getting Help with Home Improvement Costs

If you are a homeowner or a private tenant, you may be able to claim help towards making repairs, improvements or adaptations to your home, and to help you keep your independence.

Disabled Facilities Grants could help pay for necessary changes to your home - such as stair lifts - so that you can continue to live independently. If you have a disability, you may be able to get a grant. Your council will base this on your circumstances. Your income and savings will affect the level of grant you could get.
