Webinar to highlight benefits of Disabled Facilities Grant


A webinar is taking place today to highlight how the Disabled Facilities Grant can help people to remain independent at home and support successful discharge from hospital.

Hosted by the team behind the Better Care Fund, which seeks to join-up health and care services, in partnership with Foundations and Care and Repair England, the online session will commence at 2pm.

The purpose of the webinar is to showcase the benefits of the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) to support people to remain as independent as possible and leave hospital more quickly; and highlight the importance of joint work between housing with health and social care and the benefits for people in the community.
