Adaptations Funding

Would adaptations help you to live within your home?

Each year we receive funding from Glasgow City Council to adapt properties to meet tenants changing needs. This could include:

•         Installing level deck showers or wet floor areas

•         Installing ramps

•         Fitting hand rails (internally or externally)

 

Applying for Medical Adaptations

All medical adaptations must be referred from a medical practitioner such as an Occupational Therapist, Hospital Care Team or Doctor.

The one exemption to this is where external or internal handrails are required, this may be made on a self-referral form which is available from the Co-operative.

Social Work can also help with items to aid you which are included in the list. We have a set budget each yet to assist you with Adaptations and would urge anyone who requires advice on how to apply for an adaptation or aid to contact the office for advice on 0141 944 4902.
