Disabled Facilities Grant
This is a grant for a disabled person to get help towards the cost of making changes to their home.
This grant is for all disabled people, including children and young people aged 0-25 years.
Grants may be given to make various changes, including improvements to:
- help getting into, out of and around the home;
- the safety of the property;
- access to toilet, bathing and washing facilities; and
- the kitchen.
To get this grant, you or your child will need to be assessed by an Occupational Therapist. Call the number below and request a "self referral questionnaire". This will be posted to you. Complete it and return it to the OTs.
Once you or your child have been assessed, which can take a while as the current waiting list is two years, and if the OT has recommend some adaptations, a report will be sent to Wandsworth's Home Improvement Agency who can help you with the building works.
