To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what estimate he has made of the number of disabled people offered assistance by his Department for the installation of a chair lift in their home in each of the last five years.
The Government is committed to helping disabled people live independently in their homes for as a long as possible. That is why, since 2010, we have invested over £1 billion into the disabled facilities grant, providing around 250,000 adaptations to disabled people's homes. The Department for Communities and Local Government does not collect specific information on the number of disabled people offered assistance for the installation of a chair lift in their home. However, information on the overall number of grants completed for the years 2009-10 to 2014-15 is provided in the table below.
