Extra funding to support people in their own homes

The Government has announced an extra £40m will be added to the Disabled Facilities Grant to enable more older people and adults with disabilities to have better quality of life and also help them remain independent and in their own home for longer.

Speaking at the Housing Learning and Improvement Network Conference 2012, Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb said:

“This funding will help people make the necessary practical changes to help them remain in their own home and prevent or even postpone the development of health and care needs.”
