Any disabled homeowners here successfully received a Home Adaptation grant?

This would be for access improvements and maybe you got the finance from Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs) and Housing Grants from your local authority. I can help with quick info on sources too. Interested to know of success stories.

    Hi I'm a shared owner, sharing with a housing association especially for disabled.  I have had 2 facility grants from my local council.  Bathroom alterations applied for myself and 3 yrs later my OT  applied for a ramp  outside,  door frame alteration of all doors  internal doors including 2 electric  doors and bedroom room alterations for my wheelchair.  Good luck  it is worth applying.

    Good to hear that you had a successful experience and gained 2 grants from your local council. How fast was the application process?
