Gedling Borough Council in Nottinghamshire has been handed £1m by the government to help disabled people in the area pay for mobility solutions to be installed in their homes.

It means that eligible residents can apply for up to £30,000 for improvements that will make it easier to live independently in their homes.

Councillor David Ellis, portfolio holder for public protection, said: “This grant will help people who cannot afford adaptations to their homes but desperately need them.

“We are urging residents on a low income to apply and see what help they can get.

“It could help with anything, from a ramp to a sensory room for a child with learning difficulties.”

Eligibility is based on financial circumstances and assessments for funding will be carried out by Nottinghamshire County Council.
