YOUR HOME.

nature

If you live in your own home you may be entitled to a grant which will allow you to adapt your home to allow you to live more independently, and to purchase equipment which will help you in a number of day-to-day tasks.

Adapting your home


Local authorities are required by law to give Disabled Facilities Grants to eligible applicants to make houses suitable for disabled people. The Grants are available to owners and tenants in both private and social housing sectors.You may be expected to pay some of the costs, depending on your financial circumstances.

Contact your local social services department / housing authority to arrange for an assessment of the improvements and adaptations to meet your needs, and details of accessing Disabled Facilities funding. Your local council may also be able to move you to more suitable living accommodation if this is your preference, and would offer the same help as improving or adapting the existing accommodation.


Home Improvement Agencies


If you are arranging for the work to be carried out yourself you may be able to get help from a Home Improvement Agency. They are not-for-profit organisations which advise on what work needs to be done and then project manage it on your behalf.

Foundations


The National Co-ordinating Body for Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs) in England. HIAs are not for profit, locally based organisations that assist vulnerable homeowners to improve, maintain or adapt their home. By improving people's living conditions, HIAs enhance their quality of life and enable them to remain in their home in greater comfort and security. Foundations, Bleaklow House, Howard Town Mill, Glossop, Derbyshire, SK13 8HT - Telephone: 01457 891909

ALL OF OUR LATEST.

Employment Rights.

Disabled workers share the same general employment rights as other workers, but there are also some special provisions under the Equality Act. Under the Equality Act, it is unlawful for employers to discriminate against disabled people, for a reason related to their disability, in all aspects of employment, unless this can be justified. If you believe that your employer has treated you less favourably than others for a reason related to your disability, or if your employer has not made reasonable adjustments for you in the workplace, you may want to consider further action. There are a number of actions you might take.

Disability Toolkits.

The main barriers can be inaccessible information, inaccessible buildings, inaccessible transport, inflexible procedures and practices. Public services have a duty to consult on the likely impact of proposed policies to ensure they do not have an adverse or negative impact on people due to their disability, age, gender, race or ethnicity, sexuality, religion or faith. Our team provides strategic and practical advice on engagement. Contact us for more information.

Sports & Hobbies.

Contact local council to obtain details of accessible sports facilities, parks, arts, neighbourhood centres, museums, community facilities and entertainment venues in your area. Many national and local sports organisations, clubs and groups cater for people of all ages, with all kinds of disabilities. In addition there are organisations that are specifically for people with particular disabilities. 

Disability Engagement.

Effective community engagement and consultation can help ensure the Council is providing the services that residents really need, in the way that residents want to access them. It is crucial that those being asked to take part in engagement of whatever type understand what the offer is - whether it is the ground rules of a participatory budgeting event, consultation on service changes, or why it is important to register to vote. 

Accommodation needs.

Plan ahead and let the airline or travel operators know about your needs - it is their job to help you and make your trip as safe and comfortable as possible. Choose your method of transport with care, and when flying, go with the most direct route so that you are not left trying to change flights at numerous locations around the world. Discuss with the airline if you will need any assistance.

Sportability.

A British registered charity which provides sporting and adventurous activites for people with all forms of paralysis. Activities include everything from Archery to Canoeing, Gliding to Shooting, Quad-biking to Scuba-Diving, Land-yachting, Falconry and Fishing.

Motoring.

If you are disabled and need motor transport to get out and about, contact Motability, an independent not-for-profit organisation, which provides options on car transport solutions for disabled people. In addition The Disabled Drivers' Motor Club (DDMC) is a specialist voluntary organisation in the UK run by and for disabled people who have an interest in motoring and independent mobility.

Reasonable Adjustments.

Under the Equality Act your employer has certain duties to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to ensure that you are not put at a substantial disadvantage by their employment arrangements or by any physical feature of the workplace. Examples of the sort of adjustments your employer should consider in consultation with you, are set out in the Equality Act.

YOUR RIGHTS IN HEALTH.
HEALTH SERVICES.

Your Rights in Health

YOUR RIGHTS IN HEALTH

The Equality Act 2010 is the law protecting people living with a disability from any form of discrimination as a result of their disability. Under the Act health and social services must give disabled people the same access as all other service users. 

Health Consent

CONSENT

You must be given the opportunity to grant or deny your consent to any health procedure that is suggested, provided you are mentally able to give it, are in possession of enough information to allow you to make a decision and your consent is given freely and not as the result of pressure from anyone else.

Disability Health Services

HEALTH SERVICES

If you are disabled, or care for a disabled relative or friend it is important that you understand what health related services are available to you from social services, the Health Service and voluntary organisations. 

Occupational therapists

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS

Occupational therapists work with people of any age with physical or mental health problems to promote their independence in caring for themselves, in employment and in leisure activities. Occupational Therapists work with disabled people, their families and/or carers, to resolve any practical problems or restrictions on lifestyle that might be experienced.
