My tips for speeding up your bathroom grant

  1. Nominate one person to do the paper work. A person that’s good at admin. Often the people who need the grant are elderly and so will have difficulty in dealing with forms and contractors etc.
  2. Do everything by email. It’s much quicker.
  3. Get straight onto the internet and download the forms. The links on this page should bring you straight to the downloads page. Just click on the appropriate council link.
  4. Read through the forms carefully. Make a list. 
  5. Ring the council to gather as much information as possible. There may be things you don’t understand. They will help you and explain things to you. The important thing is that you are clear on all the information that you need to gather. Ring early in the day as council lines can be very busy.
  6. Gather the information as quickly as possible. Get working on all the documents you require straight away. If you delay in requesting information you will kick yourself as you may be waiting weeks. For example OT’s are hard to reach. Contractor quotes can take a couple of weeks. Your tax affairs need to be up to date too.
  7. O’Connor Carroll will be very quick to send a rep out and will send your quote quickly.
  8. Before you send any documents to the council take a complete copy. Just in case it gets lost.
  9. Ring the council to confirm they have received your application.
  10. Ring the council to ensure you are not forgotten. Keep up to speed on the progress of your case. If your case is not progressing find out why!

The key thing when applying for a grant is speed. Be proactive. Often the grant takes so long because the applicants themselves are slow to gather all the information together.
