Equipment and Adaptations

What does it do?

The service aims to help you live as independently as possible. If you are having problems getting up and down stairs and generally moving around your home we may be able to help you.  It may be that an adaptation to your home, such as a ramp or level access shower, could enable you to remain living there independently.

Who it is for?

The service is for Children and eligible adults who live in the borough of Kent and who need help due to sight or hearing loss, a physical or learning disability, frailty or illness.

Where it is available?

Local service (Gravesham, Maidstone, Swale, Thanet, Tonbridge & Malling, Tunbridge Wells, Ashford, Canterbury, Dartford, Dover, Sevenoaks, Shepway).

What it costs:

To help with the cost there are currently grants available from local district councils called Disabled Facilities Grants. These grants are means tested so you may not be eligible for some or any help towards the cost of your work.
