You may be eligible for a grant if you need to make adaptations to your home to meet the needs of a disabled person.

A disabled facilities grant (DFG) can be used for people with disabilities who need to:

  • adapt their home to continue living independently  
  • find more suitable accommodation if their current home cannot be adapted

Who can get a DFG

To get a grant you must:

  • be a homeowner or private tenant  
  • have an occupational therapy assessment that recommends an adaptation to your home

To find out if you are eligible you can read our guidance for making adaptations to your home  

What you need to do

If you think you are eligible for a grant you can complete an enquiry form  to ask for a test of financial resources.  The results of this will identify if you need to contribute to the cost of work to make home adaptations for an adult with disabilities. 

Home adaptations for children with additional needs are not means tested.
