How do I get an adapted property to help with my disability?

Disability and Health and Medical Rehousing

If you have a disability or a medical condition that is having a significant effect on your ability to access essential facilities in your home such as the bathroom, toilet or bedroom and you think a move to an adapted property will help you to live more independently and safely please contact our Adaptations and Wellbeing Team to discuss your options..

In order to be eligible for a move under Health and Medical Rehousing you need to be a current Homesearch member and meet a set of criteria, as explained in the Criteria and Procedure for Rehousing on Health and Medical Grounds.

If after reading the document, you think you might meet the criteria you should contact the Adaptations and Wellbeing Team on 01977 724460, or you can email them and they will call you back to discuss your situation.

If it is decided that you may meet the criteria for rehousing on Health and Medical Grounds you will be sent an initial application form asking you for more information about your difficulties.
