There are lots of examples of equipment that you could use around your home to help you with day-to-day tasks.
How do I get help with equipment?
Support for equipment is available from different sources, depending on your specific needs. For some types of equipment you will need to contact Community Occupational Therapy for an assessment.
We have recently changed the process for requesting equipment or adaptations. Please ensure you read the options carefully to ensure you access the correct service.
Equipment requests or minor home adaptations
To request equipment to help with a physical disability or to request minor adaptations to the home such as:
- grab rails
- raised toilet seats
- other adaptations not requiring building work
You will need to complete the referral form for an assessment by Community Occupational Therapy:

Children and young people
For requests for minor adaptations for a child or young person under the age of 18 you will need to contact the child's paediatrician.
