Aids & Adaptations

Ask for help making your home more suitable for you

If you have a disability, illness or condition that affects your mobility we might be able adapt your home to make it more suitable for your needs. This can be as small as a grab rail or as large as a through floor lift or wet floor shower.

Adaptations fall under 2 categories

  • Minor – such as or internal and external handrails, grabrails, drop down rails by the toilet, toilet frames, adjusting electrical sockets and window locks. We can normally provide these quickly. Please contact BITMO about minor adaptations. (link to report a repair contact section)
  • Major adaptations – these require a recommendation from an Occupational Therapist  

Examples of major adaptations are wetfloor showers, overbath showers, bath replacement trays, through- floor lifts, steplifts, stairlifts (curved or straight), external ramps – permanent or modular, outward opening doors and Pad, Hoists, Extensions, adjustable height kitchens, Closamat toilets, fencing for child protection.

If your home is not suitable for adaptation or adapting it is not considered practical or value for money we will work with you to find suitable alternative accommodation.

For major adaptations please call Adult Social Care on 0113 222 4401, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. If you are unable to speak to us using the phone, please email us at feedback@leeds.gov.uk.

    What services and activities should there be in BITMOs GATE?

    BITMOs GATE has offered Belle Isle residents help with finding jobs and training, financial advice, health and wellbeing and much more since 2013. Which of these services are relevant to you and people you know, what new services would you like to see brought in and could you play a part in future? You can help us to understand what you, your neighbourhood and Belle Isle needs by completing this survey. The results will be considered by the BITMO Board in November and will be used to help draw up the new GATE programme for 2022.
