Under the Care Act regulations (2014), local authorities must provide minor aids, adaptations and equipment up to the cost of £1000 free of charge for blind and partially sighted persons when it meets a need. The direct quote is:
“Community equipment (aids and minor adaptations)” means an aid, or a minor adaptation to property, for the purpose of assisting with nursing at home or aiding daily living and, for the purposes of these Regulation,s an adaptation is minor if the cost of making the adaptation is £1,000 or less."
This can include assistive technology. However, this regulation is implemented in different ways all over England.
