We moved into an association house and the kitchen is hard for me to use , i.e cupboards at corner l can't get into , the cooker is very low so no able to use properly would need on wall and have limited cupboard space and they are rammed with things falling out when opened . Is there any charity that can help as OT ignored my pleas for a disabled facilities grant ? Thank you

    Did the OT give reasons for refusing to help?

    When you say the cooker is too low what exactly do you mean? Cookers are usually standard height.

    What do you mean by "cooker is too low"? Also didn't you checked the property before moving into it?
