Hi we are home owners also and had the £30,000 dfg towards adaptions,you need to ask social services for the rest of the monies as we did £18,000,they put a charge on your mortgage so you only have to pay it back if you sell and move on.

I know your child is only 3 yrs old and you can manage now but long term you will definately need this adaption done.

Good luck and keep pushing SS.
