Disability and Home Improvements Team

If the design and layout of your home makes it difficult or even impossible for you to carry out everyday activities such as bathing, using the toilet, cooking or preparing meals, the Disability and Home Improvement Team can help.

We have building surveyors and occupational therapists who have expertise in the design and adaptation of housing to meet the needs of people with physical disabilities.

What can we do to help?

If you are assessed as eligible for help we can carry out major adaptations to your home. For example, we can:

  • provide a stairlift or through-the-floor lift if you are unable to manage the stairs
  • replace a bath with a walk-in or wheel-in shower
  • or provide a ramp if you use a wheelchair and find it difficult to get in and out of your home.

For more information about this service please contact 020 8921 2304.

Please note that there may be an eligibility criteria and/or charge for some services.
