On 1 July 2020, we merged with Greenfields Community Housing to form Eastlight Community Homes. Click here for the latest information on Covid-19 service changes.

Adapting Your Home

Sometimes ill health or a change in your circumstances means your home is no longer suitable for you. Sometimes this means considering a move, in which case you should talk to us about our transfer waiting list. However, sometimes it may be possible to adapt your home to better suit your needs. This might include installing a ramp, putting grab rails in your bathroom or an extra handrail on your stairs.

We carry out minor adaptations for tenants and work with local authority partners when major works are required, helping residents apply for Disabled Facilities Grants when appropriate.

For more information, please download our information guide. 

If you would like advice or support on making your home safer for you or a disabled family member who lives with you, please email adaptations@colnehousing.co.uk or call 01206 244700.

If you would like to propose any type of improvement for your home, please fill out this form and send to us either by email or post, and we will be in contact.
