DFG Funding

HOW TO APPLY FOR A DISABLED FACILITIES GRANT (DFG)

 

If you have a disability and need to make changes to your home or bathroom, it’s possible to get a grant from your local council to cover some or all of the work needed.

Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) may be provided to you by your local authority to help adapt your bathroom. This is specifically to allow for improved accessibility and to make it more suitable for your needs. As part of this grant, the purchase of a Contour Showers easy access shower can either be fully or partially funded.

The grant covers anything that contributes towards you living a fulfilling and independent life, as long as the work can be shown to improve your quality of life.

Products such as a level access shower or wet room walk in shower can vastly improve the quality of life for disabled people, they can provide a safe and comfortable way to shower without the need of assistance from another person or carer. And, for many people, using a bath is simply impossible, so a Contour Showers easy access shower may be absolutely necessary for them to continue living in their own home.

To receive a Disabled Facilities Grant, the applicant should make contact with their local authority. An assessment will follow after which the size of the contribution towards the work required to improve your bathroom will be advised. Homeowners may apply personally and the scheme is also open to those who live in rented accommodation. Tenants can apply for a grant through their landlords.

To apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant simply visit: https://www.gov.uk/disabled-facilities-grant and enter your UK postcode. This should provide you with the relevant council’s contact details and a link to their website for more information.

A Disabled Facilities Grant offers a maximum of £30,000 but this figure can be topped up by local authorities for help with other home improvement projects for eligible residents.
