Housing

At The Brain Charity, our team are trained to help you manage many of the common issues that can affect people with neurological conditions.

These can include the money in your pocket, transport, loneliness and confidence – but arguably most important is the roof over your head.

Aids and adaptations

If you or a relative have been diagnosed with a neurological condition or are facing a new disability, your current housing may no longer be suitable for you or your families’ needs.

The Brain Charity’s Information and Advice Officers can help you apply for adaptations to your home and special aids to be fitted, to make it easier for you to live independently.

Housing aids and adaptations can give you or someone you care for more independence and a better quality of life.

Other ways we can help

Our staff can help you apply for social and adapted housing properties, Discretionary Housing Payment, Housing Benefit and other forms of welfare benefit.

The Brain Charity can also advocate for you with housing associations, social housing providers and private landlords, help organise repairs and assist you to manage rent arrears and mortgage holidays.

We can organise appeals, help report issues such as anti-social behaviour and apply for supported or Extra Care accommodation for older people.

Our Information and Advice Officers can help you find emergency grant funding for specialist equipment, like beds and furniture, and for domestic appliances.

We can also support you to access other housing advice services if your issue is urgent, complex or very specialist.
