More that £165m to support home adaptations for disabled people

Posted on the MS Trust website from the author the News Distribution Service:
Communities Minister Lord McKenzie has today granted over £165m to help local councils pay for adaptations that will enable disabled people to live comfortably and independently in their own homes.

The Disabled Facilities Grant programme will help around 40,000 people with disabilities make improvements to their homes, thereby improving their everyday lives and allowing them to avoid the hassle and costs of moving house.

The Minister has today announced how much cash each council will receive this April to support people in their local area.
