Minor Adaptations to your Property
If you need to make changes to your home because your needs have changed or you are a new resident, you may be able to get a grant through us from the Welsh Government. Minor Adaptations Grants, also known as Physical Adaptation Grants (PAG’s) can only be carried out on our properties. In order for us to apply for a grant an Occupational Therapist’s report must be submitted to us. The report should say why and what changes are needed.
Minor Adaptations Grant Process
- ClwydAlyn resident visits Doctor and is referred to Occupational Therapist
- OR ClwydAlyn resident contacts Occupational Therapist in their county/local authority
- OR ClwydAlyn resident contacts the Hospital Occupational Therapist before they are discharged.
- For more information See the Accessing Care and Support in North Wales Document
- Occupational Therapist visits resident and produces ‘Referral’, the ‘Referral’ is then sent to us
- Specialist Mechanical equipment requires a service charge agreement
- Drawings and Schedule prepared and sent out to Occupational Therapist and Client for approval
- The job is sent out to Contractors for tender
- Welsh Government to approve funding or Fast Track Schemes
- We visit the site with the contractor when works commence and interim inspections
- We visit the site with the Contractor when works are complete
- Satisfaction questionnaire is sent to resident to gauge the quality of service and work
The above process could take a maximum of 6 to 12 months, although Fast Track Schemes can be completed in a shorter time scale (dependant on individual needs and circumstances).
