Fair Access to Care System (FACS)

FACS is a scheme operated by Local Authorities to ensure that people can have access to subsidised services and equipment that will promote independence and help to ensure their safety.

Before you think about buying a piece of equipment that will help with day-to-day living skills and mobility, please check with your local KAB rehabilitation team first. If you meet the FACS criteria, you may be eligible to receive equipment free of charge for long term loan as well as subsidised services.
