Description

Minor Works Grants are available for people who have a disability or health condition that makes day to day life difficult to manage. The grant can pay for small adaptations to your home that will make it easier for you to live independently and safely. Works must cost less than £1000.

The grant can pay for grab rails and hand rails inside and outside the home, lever handles for taps, exterior lighting, moving electric switches or sockets, replacing cupboard handles and keysafes.

In many cases these adaptations can be carried out quickly and free of charge, without the need for an assessment or means test.

If your needs are more complex, you can contact Gateway to Care and arrange a home visit from the Community Occupational Therapy Assessment Service. The occupational therapist can recommend adaptations to suit your needs and the Handyperson Service will carry out the work.
