Adaptations for people with disabilities
A grant at a minimum of 80% of eligible costs may be available to adapt an existing private house to meet the needs of an occupant who is disabled. A grant of 100% may be available dependent upon qualification through certain benefits.
In the first instance the applicant must contact the Bon Accord Care Occupational Therapy Service to ensure that they are fully assessed as to their personal requirements.
For further details on accessing this grant please contact:
Duty Occupational Therapist
Bon Accord Care
If applicants require details on the grant itself, please contact the Private Sector Housing Unit.
Assistance may also be offered in relation to council and housing association tenants through a different financial arrangement but again, the Duty Occupational Therapist should be contacted in the first instance at the number given above.
The Scottish Government have published a leaflet aimed at disabled people living in private housing in Scotland. The leaflet summarises the changes to the system of financial assistance with adaptations introduced on 1 April 2009.
