If you need a stairlift or changes to your home that are designed to address mobility problems, you may be entitled to a grant.
Rental stairlifts are available if you are waiting for grant approval. Sometimes approval can take some time and renting a stairlift in the meantime is a popular choice.
The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme is available to fast track grant aid to cover a basic suite of works to address mobility problems, primarily, but not exclusively, associated with ageing.
