Home adaptations and things you can do
Local authorities can provide financial help if you need to repair, improve or adapt your home for health reasons.
For example, you could apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant to help install a stair lift, a ramp, or central heating.
Grants may also be available to help you improve the heating systems and insulation in your home. These grants are mainly for people who are disabled, on a low income, or over 60.
Our leaflet Keeping warm without the worry has detailed information about heating grants and managing your energy costs.
