Equipment and Adaptations Service

What does it do?

The Equipment and Adaptations service can help you if you need to find safer ways to do everyday tasks. We give advice over the telephone or during a home visit. We might be able to provide you with:-
* adaptations to your home, such as a ramp or stair lift

* equipment to make your home easier to live in, such as a high seat to help you use
   the toilet.
We won't provide equipment that you could buy yourself for under £50, unless it's something which needs fitting.

Who it is for?

People who have a disability and need to find safer ways to do everyday tasks.

Where it is available?

How to access or apply for it:

You can request our help by telephoning the Adult Access Team on 0114 273 4908.

* provide most equipment and adaptations within seven days of deciding what you
* provide most major adaptations within 12 months
* advise you about how to cope while you wait for your equipment and adaptations.
