An auxiliary aid is an extra piece of equipment which can be used by a disabled person in their home to make their day-to-day life easier. For example, an auxiliary aid could be a ramp, a raised seat for the loo or an accessible door entry system. If you rent your home, you can ask your landlord to provide you with auxiliary aids - the page on disabled people's rights in rented accommodation has more information.
