Cambs HIA can help eligible clients through the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) process. Our experienced team of Caseworkers, Surveyors and Administrators can help deliver the right adaptation solution to meet the disabled person's needs.

DFG's are mandatory grants to help eligible disabled people carry out esential adaptations to their property to give them better freedom of movement into, and around their home, as well as provide access to essential services within the home.

Examples of work eligible under a DFG are:

  • improving access to and from the property
  • providing safe access to bathing
  • the provision of a stair lift or through floor lift
  • extensions to provide ground floor living
  • adapting or providing heating or lighting systems to make them easier to use

Before making a grant application we will advise clients to request an assessment by an Occupational Therapist so that we can be sure that their immediate and long term needs will be met.

Are you eligible?

Our services are available to homeowners, private tenants and Housing Association tenants who are over 60 or on low incomes, and disabled people of all ages.

Grants for adaptations are means tested (unless the adaptation is for a child) and you may be required to make a contribution. If you receive certain benefits then you may automatically qualify for grant funding.
