If you are a homeowner, or a private rental tenant ( you rent from a private landlord, not the council) you may be eligible to receive a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) to pay for your adaptation. Like most grants a DFG is subject to a financial means test to determine how much, if anything, you will need to contribute towards the cost of the works.
If you rent your home from the council then it is likely that your adaptations will be funded by the council as part of your tenancy agreement assuming that:
Your rent account is not in a state of arrears.
You have not recently submitted a 'Right to Buy' application which is being processed.
You do not have a 'live' re-housing application in place.
In some instances, however, your rent may increase as a consequence of your adaptations e.g. if the number of bedrooms are increased as a result of the adaptation.
