One Stop Resource Centre

Equipment and adaptations advice line

The service is partially open for applications for assessment for Major adaptations only. The service remains closed for routine equipment and minor adaptation referrals.  Our team remains re deployed supporting the Covid response teams.  If you feel you are at risk because you need urgent equipment or minor adaptations please contact your healthcare provider.

Our resource centre is a joint venture between Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) and Trafford Council. It provides community equipment and adaptation services for people living in Trafford, who may need assistance with daily living due to a disability.

Who can apply?

Anyone living in Trafford who has a permanent or substantial disability or who cares for a person with a permanent or substantial disability.

Your first step is to contact the Equipment and Adaptations Advice Line (EAAL) using the details below:

Telephone: 0345 2990798

The line is open Monday to Friday 9:00am to 12 noon and Mondays and Fridays only 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

The EAAL telephone is staffed by a member of the Occupational Therapy Assessment Team who will advise you of possible options and, if necessary, take your details and add them to the waiting list for an appointment to receive a home visit for assessment of your needs.

There is a priority system and it may be some time before an Occupational Therapist or Disabled Living Advisor (DLA) can visit you.
