Who is eligible
An owner or private tenant can apply for a disabled facilities grant if they themselves have a disability or if they have a disabled person living with them.
How to apply
Call the Information and Access team on 020 7527 2299. Your home will need to be assessed by an Occupational Therapist to determine what adaptations may be needed.
Have a disability?
If any room in your home has been adapted for you or for a disabled person who lives with you, your council tax bill could be reduced
Parking for disabled people
