The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme was set up in 2007. The Scheme provides grants for works designed to address mobility problems in the home. For example, the grant can be used for the purchase and installation of grab-rails, a level access shower, access ramps or a stair-lift.
The grant is primarily for older people but people with disability can also access the scheme. You cannot apply for both the Mobility Aids Grant Scheme and the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability. However, you can withdraw your application for one scheme and submit a new application under the other.
The maximum grant available will be €6,000 and may cover 100% of the cost of the work.
