Hackney iCare

If you have a disability or are finding it difficult to access or move around your home, you may be entitled to equipment to assist with day to day activities or an adaptation to your home.

We may be able to help you if you

  • have a disability
  • or have a long term illness which causes you to have difficulties coping with daily living tasks

View the information below or search the directory for advice, guidance and help.


If you or your representative contact us, we will arrange a convenient time for someone to conduct an assessment of your needs. An interpreter can be  provided if needed. We will  aim to complete your assessments within 28 days of you contacting us.

What kind of help is there?

We can advise on suitable equipment for you or adaptations for your home that will meet your needs. Everyone's needs are different so the services offered to each individual will be different. Together we will try to agree on the best way to provide the help that you need.

Minor adaptations

We can recommend minor adaptations to your home, like grab rails, additional stair rails, concrete steps or outside galvanised rails. 

We aim to complete these within 9.5 weeks from the time of your assessment and we will deliver equipment and straightforward minor adaptations to your home within 7 days from the time the order is placed

Major adaptations

If we feel that major adaptations are needed, such as a lift or a ramp for wheelchair access, we can discuss how these can be funded. We aim to complete these within 28 weeks from the time of your  assessment.
