How long will the whole process take?

How quickly we can process your grant will depend on the level of demand and the money available. It will also depend on you sending us all the necessary documents.

The following step by step guide provides a brief outline of the process.

We will acknowledge receipt of your initial contact/Occupational Therapist Recommendation within 10 working days.

We will advise you when the inspection will take place. Depending on the demand for grants, it may take some time before an inspection can be arranged.

We will issue a list of all the works to be carried out for grant aid and this will take up to 12 weeks.

You must provide all relevant documents. This may include:

  • proof of ownership
  • plans, sketch plans
  • estimates
  • building control approval
  • planning approval

You must send us all of your documents within six months. The length of time taken to obtain these documents will depend on other statutory bodies.

You must provide details of your income, family circumstances. We will check these details to determine how much you have to contribute toward the approved cost of the work.

This may take up to six months.

This may take up to two weeks from the request for the inspection.

This may take up four weeks after the final inspection.
