Aids & Adaptations

The Scheme of Assistance Regulations 2008 introduced a minimum 80% grant funding for mandatory adaptations.  The aim is to assist home owners or private tenants to stay in their homes.  

A discretionary grant may be available for the following adaptations:

  • Installation of a fixed ceiling track hoist.
  • Other facilities recommended by the Occupational Therapy Service.

Stairlifts are now assessed through the Community Health and Care Partnership Occupational Therapy Team.

Clydebank Area 01389 811760 - Dumbarton/Alexandria 01389 737020

A Minimum grant of 50% or up to 100% assistance by way of income related means testing or on production of prescribed benefits.

Extensions to homes to provide additional living/sleeping accommodation or work to create accommodation in a separate building from the current living accommodation ARE NOT included within the scope of a discretionary grant.
