Our strategic objectives

To develop a high quality and pro-active voluntary sector for the benefit of the
residents of the Dudley Borough by positively engaging partners in support of
voluntary activity



Dudley Council is offering help to borough residents who need to adapt their homes to better meet their needs.

Anyone who is struggling with daily life in their home can ask for help. If a member of the household of any age is having difficulties bathing, getting upstairs, even getting into the home, help is on offer to adapt the property to better meet these needs.

Dudley Home Improvement Service, which is part of Dudley Council, offers the adaptations package. Grants are available to pay for adaptations, along with an adaptations package of advice and practical support. This consists of an expert recommendation, support to design and build the adaptation from technical officers and council approved builders, all work is overseen by the council, so there is no hassle and no stress to people.

Home adaptations for independence are available to people who own their own homes, or are private rental tenants. Council tenants can already request adaptations to their homes through the council.

The aim is to help people stay independent in their homes. Typical adaptations include things like handrails, stair rails, ramps, level access showers, stair lifts, through the floor lifts, even home extensions to provide extra sleeping or bathing facilities.

The service offers adaptations to people of any age from children to older people. Full grant funding is always provided for adaptations needed for children under 18.
