    Disabled Facilities Grant

    We are delighted to announce our redeveloped information sheet about Disabled Facilities Grants:

    Information sheet 22C: Disabled Facilities Grants

    This information sheet explains what Disabled Facilities Grants are, what they can be used for and how adaptations can support people living with MND to make their home suitable for their needs. It also explores other options for those who might not be able to get a grant.

    How do I order information sheets?

    You can download information sheets from our website. Click on our information sheets at: www.mndassociation.org/publications

    This will provide you with the latest version of each sheet at all times. External change means amendments can be frequent, so we recommend you download when you need this content rather than keeping stock or individual PDFs on your computer.

    If you have any old stock, please do not use this as the information will be out of date.

    When you do need hardcopies of information sheets, contact our Care Admin team. Please provide recipient details if possible.

    Telephone: 01604 611812 or 611685
    Email: careadmin@mndassociation.org


    If people living with or affected by MND wish to order direct, they can contact the MND Connect helpline. The team provide support and directions to further assistance, their number is 08457 626262.

    We will advise care centres about this revision. An update will also be posted in The News, Thumb Print and social media. Thank you.

    I have social services coming to see me on Thursday to assess for adaptations to my home. Will I know straight away if I qualify?

    Hi , not sure if you will find out straight away. We had them come about through the floor lift, they did let us know a week later, we were eligible for it but decided to use the grant amount for the extension instead. Lorret

    Thanks loretto. I am hoping to qualify for a downstairs wet room and access to the garden as I love sitting outside but it's getting hard now as there are steps down to it x

    Well... The lady from social services came and assessed what I need to help me stay in my home and make it more beneficial to my needs. I have to wait for a financial assessment first to see what funding I can have. Crossing my fingers. Won't build my hopes up too much though. If it's anything like my critical illness policy (which was turned down, now in hands on ombudsman) they will probably say... 'computer says no!!' she's recommending access to front and back of the house and a wet room downstairs. Here's hoping!!

    Make sure you get advice on which adaptations are VAT exempt. It's a bit complicated.
