Aids and adaptations

We understand the importance of your independence and will do all that we can to help our less able customers stay in their own homes for as long as possible.

If you have a disability or specific need that prevents you from living independently you can apply to have an adaptation made to your home. 

An adaptation is a change to your home which allows you or someone who lives with you, to live more independently, or which improves safety or mobility around the home.

To apply for minor aids or adaptations, such as grab rails and small ramps, please contact our customer services team on 0300 300 0059.

For larger adaptations, such as a stairlift or level access shower, please contact Shropshire Council on 0345 678 9005 to request an Occupational Therapist assessment.

Below is a leaflet which sets out our aids and adaptations service and provides lots of useful information on the difference between a minor and major adaptation, how long it may take to get an adaptation, plus much more.
