The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme provides grants for works designed to address mobility problems in the home, such as the purchase and installation of grab-rails, a level access shower, access ramps or a stair-lift. The scheme is primarily for older people, but people with a disability can also apply for it.

If you need more extensive works done, or if you do not qualify under the means test, you can apply for the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability instead. Depending on your situation, the Housing Aid for Older Persons Scheme may be more suitable for you.

These 3 schemes are administered by local authorities, under the Housing (Adaptation Grants for Older People and People With A Disability), Regulations 2007, which were amended by new Regulations in 2014.

You can apply for a refund of VAT on the aids and appliances that you need. This refund scheme also applies to the cost of the installation work.
