Disabled Facilities Grants for Individuals

What are Disabled Facilities Grants?

There is a range of options available which may make you and/or your carer's everyday life much easier and safer.  A Disabled Facilities Grant is funding to help a disabled person adapt their home to make it easier and safer to live in.  The works must be necessary and appropriate.  This will need to be discussed between the disabled person and an Occupational Therapist or Trusted Assessor.  It must also be reasonable and practicable to carry out the works - this often depends on the age, condition and layout of the property.

There are 72 Places of Welcome registered in Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent

After what has been a long and hard 2020 for us all, but especially for those whom we all support in our local communities, I would like to close the year by celebrating the resilience and ingenuity that has been shown by our Places of Welcome in Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire, and look forward to reaching out into our neighbourhoods again, come the New Year. 

Look for a Light Project

Communities have pulled together during Covid-19 producing relationships that would not have been seen before. New Inter-generational relationships have gained importance in communities.  There is a sense of neighbourhood. The cohesive work that has been completed during Covid-19 is an asset which we wish to retain, and with the lack of being able to properly celebrate Halloween and Bonfire night the Look for a Light project came into being as something to get involved in, something fun, something that creates light in the dark days of autumn and winter.
