Disability Relocation Grant

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

Up to £2,000.

What can I get help with?

You can get help towards reasonable moving costs:

To qualify for this grant, the following criteria apply:

  • you must be unable to afford the full cost of the removal costs. This will be established using a Test of Resources (means test).
