Disabled Facilities Grants 2015

This briefing from Habinteg Housing Association explains the important changes taking place to Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) funding, now administered locally through the Better Care Fund.

DFG funding is available from local authorities to support independent living by providing adaptations which make homes more accessible and tailored to the specific needs of individual disabled people.

It presents evidence on the inaccessible nature of much of the existing housing stock, explains why housing adaptations are so often needed and argues for the vital importance of continued DFG funding.
