Home adaptation

Disabled children with complex needs may require adaptations to their housing to ensure that it is safe, accessible and meets their needs.

There is funding to help meet the cost of housing adaptations for disabled children. The Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG), awarded by district councils, currently provides up to £30,000 towards the cost of building adaptations that are assessed as meeting eligibility criteria.
