Rochdale HIA

The title of Social Housing Adaptations Service of the Year has gone to Rochdale Home Improvement Agency for the way it has engaged social landlords and helped them to deliver ‘pioneering solutions’. Part of Rochdale Council, the HIA has worked closely with landlords to help them understand the disabled facility grant (DFG) process and use funding flexibly in order to support tenants. Success stories include a family with three wheelchair-dependent children who moved into a new home that had been adapted to their needs using DFG money.
