Housing modifications

A grant of £1,500 was made to help fund critical home modifications for a 45-year-old former Sergeant and his wife. The veteran served for 25 years, with tours in Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq. His wife is severely disabled but the family lost disability benefits on the return from an overseas posting. Having saved for the purchase of their home, the couple could not afford to make adaptations to the bathroom after her physical capacity declined.
