There are times in most people's lives when they need an extra helping hand. Because of this, we offer a range of services for elderly and disabled residents, including grants to help make adaptations to people's homes, concessions on travel, council tax and housing benefits, as well as making sure our offices are as accessible as possible and our website is easy to use.
Find out about our accessible services by following the links below, or download our leaflet from the menu on the right where you will find further information about how we are trying to ensure our services are accessible for people with disabilities and the elderly:
