A really useful guide on the VAT rules that give relief to disabled people.
This is not a statement of law but it is a useful guide.
If you have a specific question you can call HMRC on 0845 302 0203. (Select Option 1)
HMRC web site also provides a VAT Relief Guide for Disabled People
Sorry about some of the language – they are not our words but those of HMRC!
In a nutshell!
There is no one simple rule that applies.

In general disabled people don't have to pay VAT when they buy equipment that has
been designed for disabled people or when they have equipment adapted so they can use it.
Think of 3 rules and do they apply to you. All 3 must apply at the same time.
1. Is the person eligible

2. Are the products eligible

3. Are the products being used for domestic use

Platzmat™ -A non-slip table-setting place mat for people with Dementia

Setting the table is a task which is low risk and yet engages with the homebuilding instinct, so strong in many women with Dementia

Engagement in ’mothering’ or ’help around the home’ type of tasks are beneficial, and this place mat enables another simple and worthwhile activity promoting self-worth and satisfaction.

As part of the care process to sustain active engagement of women with Alzheimer’s, often they are encouraged to assist with household activities, one of which is cooking.

As the effects of dementia increase then the kitchen becomes an unfit environment to engage in and alternative “normal household tasks“ are needed, in order to maintain self-worth and fulfilment. One of these tasks being to set the table; the problem being that people forget how to.

Its purpose is to encourage continuing engagement of people with Alzheimer’s in laying the table whilst providing clues to aid the failing memory.
