DFG Analytics


The Chancellor announced at the 2015 spending round that up to £500 million of capital funding is being made available by 2019/20 for the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) as part of the Better Care Fund. The Department of Communities and Local Government has recently announced an allocation of £431 million to local authorities in England for 2017/18. That announcement included reference to Foundations, and our offer to support local authorities on the efficient delivery of home adaptations.

Foundations are developing a number of tools to support the better delivery of home adaptations, and in partnership with i4H (social housing analytics specialists) are launching a brand new DFG Analytics and peer comparison service.
