Trafford Council Adaptations Team

An adaptation is an alteration or addition to your home that will allow you or a carer greater safety or independence to access your home and its facilities.  A referred adaptation could simply be a grab rail to aid your stability or a full ground floor conversion to give bedroom, bathroom and level access for a wheelchair user. To determine what you need is the first stage and we can only adapt your home after your "needs" have been assessed.  Any adaptation proposed must be considered necessary and appropriate, it must also be provided in a reasonable and practical way.
