Disability Relocation Assistance

A grant to help disabled people move to a more suitable property

Disability Relocation Assistance is a grant to help people with disabilities with the costs of moving home. The maximum grant is £3,000.

What can I get help with?

  • home information pack costs
  • disconnection and reconnection of household appliances
  • removal and reinstallation of disability equipment

Am I eligible for this grant?

To qualify for this grant, the following criteria apply:

  • you must be unable to afford the full cost of the eligible relocation expenses. This will be established using a Test of Resources (means test).
  • the property you are moving from must be in Cheshire East (although the property you are moving to doesn't necessarily have to be in Cheshire East)
  • the disabled person must have been assessed as needing adaptations by an occupational therapist but your current property can't be adapted
