If you are a Hull City Council tenant, you can apply to have aids and adaptations to your property to make it easier and safer to live in your home. There are various adaptations available, including -
- stair lifts
- access and egress ramps
- access to bathing facilities
- access to toileting facilities
You must have been referred to Occupational Therapy (OT) for an assessment before contacting the Private Housing team, if you have not then use the relevant link below
To qualify, the person being considered must have -
- a physical or mental impairment
- substantial mental health issue caused by -
- a physical disability caused by -
- substantially impaired
If your home is not suitable to be adapted we can add you to our adapted housing list and you must also have had an assessment by an occupational therapist who has determined that you need an adapted property.
The OT refers you to financial care, if you not had a referral from an OT you would be signposted back to Social care. Once the OT has passed the referral back to financial care this will be passed to a Housing Officer who will attend with a surveyor to assess whether you are better suited to move or have your home adapted.
