Housing adaptation grants

There are a number of grants and schemes available to assist older people who wish to remain in their home.

The Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability scheme provides grant aid to applicants to assist in the carrying out of works that are reasonably necessary for the purposes of rendering a house more suitable for the accommodation needs of a person with a disability. The scheme is administered by local authorities.

The Scheme of Housing Aid for Older People is available to assist older people to have necessary repairs or improvements carried out to their homes.

The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme is available to fast track grant aid to cover a basic suite of works to address mobility problems, primarily, but not exclusively, associated with ageing.
