How long will it take?

While there is no specific timeframe we can give, due to the requirement to involve several agencies to assess your needs, recommend works, approve the works and calculate the amount of grant, you should expect to have to be patient with your application.

Major adaptations in particular can sometimes be a lengthy process and have been known to take up to a year or more before a completed application is in place.

All applications are prioritised according to the needs shown in the assessments by Social Services.

No works can be carried out until approval in writing has been given.

Finally funding for disabled facilities grants is not unlimited each year, and so in the event that all the funding is used up on other grant applications your grant may have to wait until funding becomes available for approval.
