Covid-19 – Private Sector Grant update
We continue to respond to coronavirus (COVID 19) and have been able to resume technical inspections.
We would ask for your patience as we work through the significant build-up of property inspections which we were unable to carry out during lockdown. We are contacting customers to arrange appointments and are open to accepting new applications for grants.
As a reminder Disabled Facilities Grants must be referred by an applicant’s Occupational Therapist from their local Health and Social Services Trust. Details of this and the other grants (repair, renovation, replacement and home repair) may be found on our website.
The safety of our customers and team members is a priority. We will work with you to ensure you feel safe during the visits we arrange to your home. Our team will carry out a pre-visit assessment, wear PPE and strictly follow social distancing rules. More information on this can be found in our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section below.
A contractor is employed by a grant applicant, therefore you should ensure your contractor is maintaining a high standard of health and safety on site and observing Health & Safety regulations; this includes social distancing.
The Questions and Answers below will provide more information; it is also available in PDF format to download and print: Frequently Asked Questions.
