If you have a physical illness or disability you may need some alterations carried out to your home to help you get around. If you’re a private tenant, you’ll need to get your landlord’s permission to alter the property in any way. Alterations could range from the relatively small, like a ramp or a handrail, through to larger adaptations such as putting in a downstairs toilet.
You may be able to get a grant to make your home more energy efficient or if you need to adapt it because you, or someone else living there, has a disability. There are other grants, but these are only approved in exceptional circumstances.
