Equipment, tools or technology such as grab rails, toilet frames, bed raisers, adapted cutlery and electronic devices can help you to remain independent in your own home.

If you need more specialist equipment or adaptations, for example a stairlift, you will require an assessment. Check our Find information for adults, children and families website for more information.  

How to help yourself

If you do not have long term needs due to an illness or disability or you would like to buy your own equipment, our ‘Find information for adults, children and families’ website includes advice and guidance on being independent at home, including adaptations, equipment and self-help.

When we may be able to help you

If you are over 18 years old with long term needs due to an illness or disability,you can request equipment to help with the daily tasks you find difficult.

On the next page you can check if you meet the criteria to request equipment.

If you are a parent or carer and need an assessment for your child, visit our SEND Local Offer website.
