4. Major adaptations

These include extensive structural alterations and will normally cost between £1000 and £30000.  We do not provide any funding in excess of £30000.  (Where funding is required beyond this we will work with partner organisations and the tenant to look at other options and other sources of funding.)

All adaptations between £1000 and £30000 require an assessment by an occupation therapist and the completion of a statement of need.

Types of major adaptations include:

  • installation of ramps and widening doorways
  • adapting or providing a room to make it safer for a disabled person
  • provision of a stair lift
  • provision of a level access shower

Once adaptations have been carried out at the property we will arrange for someone to inspect the works to ensure that you are satisfied with them and to make sure they have been undertaken to the required standard.
