Recently a number of people have contacted us to ask whether there is any funding available for disabled facilities in the home such as our mobility walk in showers and baths. The answer is yes there is funding available to help with the cost of some of the essential home improvements required for people living with disabilities or the elderly with limited mobility.
Various bodies offer grants to help those wanting to keep living independence at home and also to make your home safer. We did some research for you and here’s the best three that we found.
1. Government Disabled Facilities Grant – Up to £30k available (not available in Scotland). This grant is particularly beneficial for bigger home improvements like having ramps fitted, stair lifts or easy access mobility bathrooms that are suitable for disabled access.
2. Home equipment help – depending on your local council there are different options available, but this scheme can also offers similar funding to that of above, with funding for large improvement work as well as smaller pieces of helpful equipment.
3. Mobility scooters and wheelchairs – Get from A-B and around your home with ease and independence with a motorised wheelchair. There is help available to cover costs of equipment that are essential to your daily life.
