The Association received funding from the Scottish Government to carry out adaptations to our tenants homes where there is a medical requirement. This includes fitting level access showers, or grab rails inside and outside your home.
We need a medical assessment to allow these alterations to proceed. If you wish to apply for a medical adaptation please submit a referral form or letter from either your Occupation Therapist (East Renfrewshire Council Occupational Therapist can be contacted on 01418007850) your Doctor, your consultant at hospital or Social Work Department. Janice Peters, Property Services Manager will contact you on receipt of the referral/letter.
We are asked to bid for funding each year and receive this allocated funding from the Scottish Government – sometimes we have to wait for confirmation of what this funding will be. For 2013/14, we received funding of £56,000 and we have drawn down all grant available this year.
