People with a disability have a right to live somewhere that is safe and comfortable, where they can live active, independent and fulfilling lives.
We offer a range of services and support to help you to live independently. An occupational therapist or someone from social care services can visit your home to discuss your needs. The occupational therapist can also give you information about grants which may be available to you if you live in private property. They can also discuss your needs with the district or borough council if you live in a council property.
Following an assessment of your needs, the local home improvement agency can help you to obtain the papers you require to apply for a grant.
For more information, please contact the customer services centre.

Disability and independent living
More than one million disabled adults live alone in the UK. With the right support and facilities, leading an independent life with a physical or learning disability is now more achievable than ever. For more information see the Disability and independent livingpage from NHS Choices.
Adjusting to disability
We often talk about disability as if it's always a life-long condition. In fact, more than 80 per cent of disabled people were born without their disability. The majority of disabled people became disabled in adulthood. For more information see the Adjusting to disabilitypage from NHS Choices.
