Safe and secure assistance
Generally safe and secure assistance is targeted at the elderly or vulnerable household in order to provide assistance, with smaller, urgent works.
There are two main types of safe and secure assistance:
- to address certain hazards in the home, including essential and urgent repairs, and
- minor disabled facilities adaptations, where this is considered to be more appropriate than through the more usual Mandatory Disabled Facilities Grant process (this is following assessment by an Occupational Therapist from Social Services)
