The Disabled Facilities Grant has been around for 30 years but how it works is often misunderstood. This seminar breaks down the legislation and regulations and looks at the role home adaptations should play within a joined-up housing, health and social care system.
Paul Smith is on a mission to improve how home adaptations are provided. Trained as a Building Surveyor, he has a unique 25 year background in building design, grant administration, policy development and commissioning. Winner of multiple national awards he has introduced a number of innovations that improved the customer experience.
Paul is now the Director of Foundations, the national body for Home Improvement Agencies in England. In 2018 he was a key part of the team that undertook an independent review of Disabled Facilities Grants for the UK Government.
