  • Adaptations

    If equipment will not meet your needs, you may benefit from an adaptation.

    What is an adaptation?

    An adaptation is a physical alteration to your home to enable you to live as independently as possible. These can be either 'minor' or 'major' adaptations.

    Examples of minor adaptations include:

    • grab rails; and
    • a half step.

    Minor adaptations are provided free of charge by the Council (or your landlord if you rent your home from a housing association).

    Examples of major adaptations include:

    • a level access / walk-in shower;
    • a stair lift;
    • a ramp to enable you to get in or out of the property to your garden; and
    • a ceiling track hoist.

    The cost of major adaptations can usually be paid by a Council grant called a Disabled Facilities Grant. For more information, please go to the paying for adaptations page.

    To determine if you would be eligible for an adaptation, an Occupational Therapist or Equipment and Adaptations Officer will look at whether adaptations to your property will help you.
