Who can apply for a DFG?
If you, (or someone living in your property) are disabled and need to make changes to your home, you could be eligible. For example if you:
- are physically disabled
- have a learning disability
- have age-related needs
A wider description is available on the government website.
Either you, or the person you’re applying for, must also:
- own the property or be a tenant
- intend to live in the property during the grant period (see local land charge section below)
You can also apply for a grant if you’re a landlord and have a tenant who needs this type of support.
AdaptMyHome allows you to check how well your home supports your needs, and whether you could benefit from some adaptations to help you stay safe and independent.
The Government website also contains more information about Disabled Facilities Grants.
The Foundations website also has lots of useful information for Home Improvement Agencies.
