Major adaptations covered by Disabled Facilities Grants

If you require a major adaptation such as a stairlift, through floor lift, walk in shower, or wheelchair accessible extension you need to contact your local Council for an assessment (a local Council is one ‘who you pay your Council tax to’), for a provisional means test. Once completed they will refer you on for an assessment.
