Foundations provide a range of consultancy services to local authorities or providers of HIA services.

Welcome to Foundations Consultancy. Please get in touch to request a quotation. Our consultancy work expands on the work we do nationally with councils on Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs), adaptations and with Home Improvement Agencies and much more. 

We treat each project as a fresh piece of work and our team, made up of Regional Advisors and Foundations associates bring their extensive knowledge and expertise to often difficult situations. Our approach is not to provide ‘copy and paste’ solutions, but to collaborate with all relevant staff and stakeholders combined with our experience to find the best solution for you.

  • DFG Reviews 
  • Wider Adaptation Reviews 
  • Home Improvement Agency Options Appraisals 
  • Process Analysis 
  • Procurement Options Appraisals

“We approached Foundations as we had an existing relationship with Dave Eldridge, the Regional Advisor and knew about their knowledge and experience with DFGs. We needed a quick turnaround and a speedy review. Dave and Foundations were able to provide that and some clear recommendations for progression. Some of those we started to implement in the weeks after the review was sent over.”

 Julian Watts, Private Sector Housing Manager, Ashford Borough Council

Foundations have helped many organisations from small providers seeking to enter the HIA / Handyperson sector, to large local authorities looking to restructure or redevelop their DFG systems on a large scale. Additionally, our consultancy services don’t end with the delivery of a report. Foundations continue to work with its customers to develop a long-term and on-going relationship, ensuring that strategic decisions are implemented successfully.
