Disabled Facilities Grants – A Knowsley Guide

disabled-facilities-grants-knowsley-talkAs part of our user led group activity for local people with disabilities, November’s Public Information Session is a very Knowsley low down on Disabled Facilities Grants. 

Our monthly community talk takes place at the Knowsley Centre for Independent Living, Huyton L36 6HY on Wednesday 2 November 12.30 – 2pm. All welcome

We will be joined by guest speaker Graham Keeling who is part of the Knowsley Council’s Disabled Facility Grants Team, based at the Centre. His talk will answer a lot of common questions we may have, for example who the grants are  for, what they can be used to improve or adapt, is there an eligibility criteria…..and more.

Our community led information sessions are informal and interactive – designed to enable all audience members to ask lots of questions and obtain answers. But if you don’t feel you are able to ask a question at any of our sessions, please speak to one of our group members and we’d be happy to ask a question on your behalf.

Why are we running Public Information Sessions?

We think it’s vital that local disabled people and carers are clued up about what’s out there to help them and what local support is available – there’s a lot of changes to taking place and opportunities available that local people just aren’t aware of.

“Being prepared and clued up on things is a big deal for us – and as they say knowledge is power. But it’s knowing what to do with the information, how to find your way around things, what sort of choices you have and who to go to to ask for help (if you need it). This is why we are running these” MO’S

Our past topics for our monthly information sessions include ‘A lowdown on PIP’, ‘Direct Payments’, ‘Carer Assessments’, ‘Power of Attorney’. We also offer you the opportunity for any suggestions you may have on a topic or issue you’d like us to cover in the future as part of our monthly information sessions.

If you have something you’d like us to cover or to explore, please do get in touch with us at the Knowsley User Led Organisation call Nancie on 07715 392 158 or email:hello@kulo.org.uk
