The Lightbulb Team provides a range of housing advice and support to meet different needs, including:

  • Equipment (for example a shower chair or perching stool)
  • Minor adaptations (for example a half-step or grab rails)
  • Assistive Technology
  • Warm homes and energy advice
  • Home safety checks
  • Major adaptations (for example installing a stairlift or level access shower)
  • Future housing needs and options
  • Home repairs or improvements

Getting help

Leicestershire County Council handles all queries for help from Lightbulb. Their advisor will go through some questions with you to understand your needs. Your details will be passed onto your local district Lightbulb Team who will arrange for a Housing Support Co-ordinator or Occupational Therapist to visit you.
