How much does it cost?

This service is funded by our principal supporter, Wohl Legacy, alongside generous individuals from across the community.

Some of the items recommended might be provided by your local authority. If larger home adaptations are needed, we can help you get funding through a Disabled Facilities Grant, or, if your main source of income is a state benefit, we can offer a grant or loan.

I was really struggling in my own home. I’m delighted JBD’s ‘at home’ service meant I could have all my doors widened and my kitchen and bathroom customised to accommodate my wheelchair. Now I can use my kitchen again – and soon I’ll have A great new wet room too!
