Electrical courses could assist home adaptations

New government funding could lead to growing numbers of tradespersons who have completed electrical courses being needed to help install adaptations in homes.

According to Communities and Local Government, more than £165 million has been set aside by communities minister Lord McKenzie to help councils fund home improvement projects for disabled Britons.

Such upgrades include installing stair lifts, providing a downstairs bathroom, fitting new kitchen facilities and adapting heating or lighting controls.

Commenting on the news, Lord McKenzie said: "These grants will make life significantly easier every day for many thousands of people."

"This money enables people to stay in their own home, while enjoying an improved quality of life," he added.

A spokeswoman for Foundations recently stated that home adaptations are now more important than ever, as the population continues to age.

In addition, she explained that older people now have higher expectations of their quality of life in old age.
