The most common types of adaptations carried out that qualify for grant funding are: the removal of a bath and installation of a level access shower; stairlifts and ramped access to your main door. We do not carry out the work ourselves, but we can:- • organise for drawings to be prepared after assessment by your Community Occupational Therapist • obtain quotations from selected contractors • discuss costs, help with grant applications, and suggest ways to raise finance • help with paperwork • put you in touch with other agencies that can help • provide advice and support throughout the process *Please note that the council may not be able to provide a grant if you start work prior to the application being approved. Care & Repair Service can only act as an intermediator and any Contract organised through Care & Repair for disabled adaptations is between the contractor and the owner of the property.
