If you have difficulty living in your home and you think you
need an adaptation, you can either visit your Local Service Centre

request an occupational therapy assessment.
The majority of applicants qualify for the grant. If you do not,
then we can still help you to have the work done but you will have
to pay for some or all of it out of your own resources or through a
loan. By helping you to claim various benefits we may be able to
increase your entitlement to grant assistance.
To receive the service you must be over 60 and be on benefits,
or have a disability and be on benefits.
Small household jobs such as unblocking sinks, putting up
curtain rails, fixing doorbells or installing locks.
