We are encouraging residents to have their say on a new policy which will help disabled residents fund adaptations to their homes.

The new Financial Assistance Policy will work alongside the Disabled Facilities Grant system and provide additional funding for larger, and more complex, adaptations which could make a real difference to residents’ lives.

We are also looking at introducing means-tested emergency grants and loans for homeowners to help with essential repairs which could include roofs, windows, electrics, heating and hot water.

Residents are invited to have their say on the plans and the deadline for responses is 11.59pm on Friday, 2 December.
