Disabled Bathroom Grants, Council Funded Support

What is a Disabled Facilities Grant?

Local councils offer grant support for people with registered disabilities to make accessibility upgrades to their homes, which may include the following:

  • Widen doors and install ramps
  • Improve access to facilities & rooms – e.g., stairlifts or a downstairs bathroom
  • Provide a heating system suitable for your needs
  • Adapt heating or lighting controls to make them easier to use

Who Qualifies To Apply For A Grant?

If they or anyone they reside with is disabled, housing association residents, private tenants, and private homeowners may apply to the local authority for a Disabled Facilities Grant. Landlords can also apply if they have a disabled resident.

Am I Eligible?

You could be qualified if you are registered disabled or eligible to register as disabled, have a low income, and savings of less than £6000. On request, our knowledgeable team members will provide you with additional information.

How Should I Apply?

Your local council will assist you in applying for a disabled bathroom grant. More details and an application can be found by clicking here.

What Will Happen Next?

Before making a decision, your local council can arrange for an Occupational Therapist to visit you at home.

If your application is approved, please contact us and we will arrange to meet with you at your home to discuss your bathroom renovation options.

How Long Would It Take to Approve a Grant?

It is based on which local authority you apply to and how long their approval times are. It can take 12-14 weeks on average, but more complex installations can take longer.
