Adapting your home
Disabled Facilities Grant
If you are a disabled homeowner or private tenant who finds it difficult to manage around the home, you can apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant from Tower Hamlets Council to fund changes to your home. For example to:
- widen doors and install ramps
- improve access to rooms and facilities (eg stairlifts or a downstairs bathroom)
- provide a heating system suitable for your needs
- adapt heating or lighting controls to make them easier to use.
The council is committed to making disabled facilities grant available to all eligible owner-occupiers, tenants and landlords, so that disabled residents can remain safe and independent in their own homes.
The maximum funding available is £30,000.
