Some examples of why you might be affected by your current home:

  • Following a recent accident, an applicant has become reliant on a wheelchair, but they live in a first-floor flat that is not served by a lift
  • A hospital discharge cannot take place because the patient cannot return to the home as it is impossible for them to live there
  • A wheelchair user lives in a property arranged over more than one floor and needs easy access bathing facilities, but lives in a private sector rental property and the landlord has refused to allow a stair lift to be installed or does not agree to the bathroom being adapted.
