DFG Foundations - Announcement - Artwork

Have you had a chance to review the 91-pages of new official guidance for Disabled Facilities Grants (DFG) and considered what it means for companies involved in the provision of adaptations and equipment? If not, then the upcoming BHTA presents… webinar may be exactly what you need to stay informed.

On 4 May at 2pm, Foundations UK Director and DFG guru, Paul Smith, will present a free one-hour webinar titled ‘Demystifying DFGs – Understanding the rules and speeding up the process’.

The session will provide BHTA members with an insight into DFGs, helping them to better inform and advise their customers, as well as better navigate the system.

In particular, attendees will:

  • Understand who is eligible for a DFG and what it can pay for
  • Learn what the typical DFG process involves
  • Discover how you can help to speed up the process – and make more sales

It comes following the publication of new DFG guidance (the first update in 18 years) by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and Department of Health and Social Care, bringing together and setting out in one place existing policy frameworks, legislative duties and powers, together with recommended best practice.

This will be an interactive session, so there will also be the opportunity for a Q&A with Paul.
