DFGs – optimising delivery and effectiveness

As the Government announces a further record amount of funding for Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs), deliverers are being reminded of how to utilise available resources to optimise efficient execution.

“A pot of £505m has been allocated for 2020/21. Almost 60% of grants allocated in 2018/19 were for less than £5000, and more than half the adaptations completed involved the bathroom,” observes Stephen Edwards, Head of Marketing at Closomat. Closomat already has a comprehensively trained nationwide team of product specialists to work alongside local authority adaptation teams. It can also help assess how the adaptation can be most effectively implemented, as far as toilet requirements are concerned, to deliver a positive outcome where the recipient is empowered to remain in their own home. The expertise includes adapting the WC to enable the disabled person to use it without care intervention, through to aids to assist with independent or supported safe transfer on and off the WC.
