How much does it cost?

Following an Occupational Therapy assessment that identifies a need for further input, we may recommend suitable adaptations that could be made to your home, or help you to find alternative housing options.

There will be no charge for the work needed if you're a council or housing association tenant and you've been assessed as requiring a permanent adaptation.

You'll be eligible for assistance with 80% of the approved cost if you own your property or are privately renting and an occupational therapist has assessed you as needing a permanent adaptation.

In some circumstances, a 100% grant is awarded depending on receipt of qualifying benefits.
