Where can I get more information about stairlifts?
Advice is available from your local Social Services. Either contact your nearest office or phone the local authority to find out which is your office. Alternatively, a local library should be able to give you the number or address.
Disabled Living Centres give independent advice free of charge on all aspects of assistance, adaptations, financial help and so on. You usually need to make an appointment to visit. Assist UK can give you the details of the centre nearest to you.
