Funding allocated for Capital supports can pay for technology equipment or modifications to your home or vehicle to help you live independently or help your carer to support you. This includes equipment that can help you with mobility such as wheelchairs or scooters, personal care aids like grab rails or a shower chair, but also modifications to your car for example installation of a turning chair for easy access.
If you meet certain criteria you may be allocated Capital support funding for Specialist Disability Accommodation which goes towards special housing solutions. This is for people with very high support needs and may include special designed or purpose built housing.
Budgets for items under Capital supports are restricted and each item you receive funding for will be specified in your plan. Most items require quotes from suppliers which may include assessment, delivery, set-up, adjustment and maintenance costs.
