Do you have a medical requirement?

If you require any alterations or adaptations to your home, owing to changing needs, you may ask the Association or Social Work Department for a form to enable assessment of the adaptations you require. An Occupational Therapist from Social Work Department will visit you in your home to assess your needs, in order to prioritise your requirements for the adaptation.

Adaptations are subject to grant funding with priority being given based on needs assessed and funding available.
