Apply for a Mobility Assessment

If you or a member of your household is seeking accommodation, is disabled and re-housing will enable you to overcome physical barriers created by current accommodation e.g. steps and stairs, a mobility assessment may be required.

The following are examples of cases that could qualify for a housing register award:

  • A member of the household seeking accommodation is disabled and re-housing will enable that person to overcome physical barriers created by current accommodation e.g. steps and stairs
  • A person with a severe disability requiring substantial adaptations to a property which is not, and cannot be provided for in their current accommodation
  • Children with severe conditions such as autism, or cerebral palsy, where their long term needs cannot be met without suitable accommodation
  • A member of the household seeking accommodation is disabled and re-housing will enable that person to overcome physical barriers created by the current accommodation e.g. steps and stairs
  • A person with a severe disability requiring substantial adaptations to a property which is not, and cannot be provided for in their current accommodation

A mobility assessment is a holistic assessment conducted by an Occupational Therapist. The purpose of this assessment is to identify whether you require adapted facilities in your future property (for example; the need for a wheelchair adapted property) to support your independence and wellbeing.
