Abstract

This ‘Good Practice Guide’ aims to provide authorities and those charged with service planning and provision with clear and comprehensive information about the legal position concerning home adaptations and specifically Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) alongside examples and ideas for service delivery. The Guide was originally drafted by the Housing Consultancy Partnership as an update to the Department for Communities and Local Government’s (DCLG) earlier Guidance to DFG delivery. The government’s strategy Laying the Foundations: A Housing Strategy for England, published Nov 2011, stated that it supported industry led good practice and had invited the Hom Adaptations Consortium to take the lead in publishing a good practice report.
