This report presents the findings of an evaluation of the Welsh Government’ s £1.5m grant for the provision of adaptations to the homes of older people during 2011-12.

The aims of the evaluation were:

  • To describe in detail the uses made of the grant and establish whether the grant objectives were met.
  • To understand, and assess the effectiveness of, the partnership arrangements in place between local organisations to administer the grant.
  • To suggest issues for consideration by Welsh Government when developing similar future programmes.
