Adaptations and Disabled Facilities Grants

BCP Council administers Disabled Facilities Grants to eligible children and adults, approving grants of up to £30,000 to meet or contribute to the cost of relevant adaptations that are assessed as ‘necessary’ and ‘appropriate’.  Alterations can be to the home and/or garden to meet the needs of the disabled tenant or homeowner.  Proposed adaptations must be ‘reasonable’ and ‘practicable’ in relation to the age and condition of the home.

Applications are assessed by either the Adult Social Care team or the Child Health and Disability Team.
