Disabled Home Adaptations

9. Scottish Welfare Fund

You may be able to get a Community Care Grant from the Scottish Welfare Fund if:

  • You are moving out of a care home, hospital or similar place and need to get your home adapted so you can live there independently, or
  • You need to get your home adapted so you can stay there instead of moving into a care home.
  • Usually you have to be on benefits before you can get a Community Care Grant but you may be considered if you are on a low income, whether you are working or not.

To apply, contact your local council. A list of telephone numbers and email addresses for each local council is available on the Scottish Government website.
