Adaptations

If you, or someone in your household, is disabled or less able to manage personal and domestic tasks, then equipment or an adaptation might help you.

An adaptation is usually an alteration to your home such as a ramp to your front door or a walk-in shower. Equipment can be items such as grab rails or external handrails. We are able to access grant funding if you require adaptations. We can only access this funding if we receive a report from an Occupational Therapist stating that this adaptation is necessary.

If you think that you would benefit from some equipment or an adaptation you should approach your Occupational Therapist who will assess your needs.

Effective property maintenance is essential to ensure our housing stock continues to meet housing needs and remains sustainable in the future.  We are committed to the following in relation to maintenance, management and housing delivery:

  • Recognition of our customers needs
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Quality standards
  • Suitability of purpose
  • Sustainability
  • Financial viability, affordability and value for money

We aim to achieve the above by progressing Major Repairs & Cyclical Maintenance Programmes to our properties.

We have ongoing programmes of work including shower replacements, bathroom replacements, and other energy efficiency measures, as well as cyclical painterwork programmes.
