Disability Relocation Grant

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

How much is the grant?

Up to £2,000.

What can I get help with?

You can get help towards reasonable moving costs:

  • professional removal costs
  • disconnection and reconnection of household appliances
  • removal and reinstallation of disability equipment


To qualify for this grant, the property you are moving from must be located in Cheshire East and must not be suitable for your needs (that is, the property can't be adapted to meet your needs) - this must be assessed by a Cheshire East Occupational Therapist.

Please note that there is a waiting list for assessments. Grants cannot be claimed retrospectively - if you are already planning to move house and haven't had an Occupational Therapy assessment, it is unlikely that we will be able to assist you with this grant. 

The grant is subject to a means test (financial assessment). 

How to apply

Contact the Occupational Therapy Referral and Advice team on 0300 123 5010 option 2 to request an assessment.

This grant is intended for use by people who have been assessed by an Occupational Therapist and the current home isn't suitable; please be aware that there is a waiting list for assessments. 

You can contact the Care and Repair service for more information about this grant.
