Assistance is provided to tenants who require minor property adaptations to meet the needs identified by an Occupational Therapist. Typical adaptations incude fitting handrails, level access shower installations and providing level access ramps to properties.
Some funding is available to adapt council houses to meet the support needs of our tenants. Typical adaptations include installing showers, extra heating, hand rails and ramped access.
Requests for adaptations should be made in writing to SIC Housing. When a request is received we arrange a visit from an Occupational Therapist and in some cases a community care assessment.
