Review of Independent Living Adaptations

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 23 January 2015
This study will explore and test potential changes to the structural and delivery mechanisms for independent living adaptations.

This is in order to move towards the Welsh Government goal of ensuring that adaptations can be delivered more speedily to those who need them. In doing so, it will help reduce inherent inequalities in the current system by ensuring joined up solutions, prevention and early intervention activity.

This Review was commissioned in the light of some £35 million being spent annually by local authorities in Wales on Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs); and the Welsh Government’s own spending of approximately £8 million on Physical Adaptations Grants (PAG) for social tenants.

The Review was carried out between May and November 2014 and addressed three aims:

  • mapping the current system
  • performance Indicators
  • testing the feasibility of options for change.
