  • Vulnerable due to a disability or long-term health condition; and
  • Referred to the grant scheme by their GP or a Health Practitioner; and
  • In receipt of (or eligible for) a means-tested benefit.

The grant is also subject to the following conditions:

  • The maximum grant is £5,000.
  • Works are restricted to repairs or improvements directly linked to improving or alleviating the health condition.
  • The occupant with the health condition must continue to live at the grant improved property for 3 years following completion of the work, otherwise the whole of the grant is repayable to the Council (except in the event of the death of the qualifying occupant).
