Equipment and Adaptations Grant

If you are currently affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND), you may be eligible for an MND Scotland Equipment and Adaptations Grant, supported by the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.

Our Equipment and Adaptations Grant, supported by the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, may award up to £1,500 to cover a range of equipment and adaptation costs associated with MND.

More than one application can be made but £1500 is the current lifetime limit. Here are some examples of Equipment and Adaptations Grants that have been awarded before:

  • converting a bathroom to a wet room
  • converting a downstairs room to a bedroom
  • contributing towards the cost of a stair lift
  • other similar adaptations where the bulk of the expense should be met by the local authority

"The grant made a massive difference. Without it, Brian would still be sleeping on a mattress on the floor. As he now has to sleep with his head raised he is getting better quality sleep."

Please note: In the case of applications to purchase equipment, a supporting statement from an appropriate allied health professional, such as an Occupational Therapist, will be required to confirm the equipment is both appropriate and safe to use. Except for home adaptations being carried out by the local council, two estimates will be required for any adaptations commissioned by the applicant.
