Rapid Response Adaptations

Small grants are available to undertake adaptations such as the installation of grab rails, small ramps or shower seats for example. These grants can also be used to carry out preventative work in the home, so there is less risk of you falling in your home and ending up in hospital.

The grants are only available following an appropriate referral from a health or social services professional such as a nurse, doctor, health visitor, or occupational therapist. If you have to stay in hospital, you may well be referred to us for help before returning home.

This grant programme is supported by the Welsh Assembly Government, Newport City Council and the Aneurin Bevan Health Board.
