Housing and benefits

We provide a disabled facilities grant to provide physical facilities and safety related needs for young people with special educational needs or disabilities. 

If you have a social worker, they will be able to help advise you on your housing options. You can also apply using our get help with your housing situation page. If you need help to fill this in you can ask at any of the council’s contact centres or libraries. Your social worker may also be able to help.

If you are applying for housing with a child with medical needs, you may receive a higher points allocation for bidding for a council or housing association property if your case is accepted.
