DLF Data Web App

Date: February 2013

DLF-data, the DLF’s (Disabled Living Foundation) professional database of daily living equipment / assistive technology is now available as a web app for use on Smart Phones. This means therapists with a login could find product details, suppliers’ contact details, retailers and organisations via their phones when out on home visits or working across sites. They can give relevant details to service users then and there, and not have to wait till they are back in the office. Therapists attending last month’s Moving and Handling Conference 2013 described the DLF-data web app as “very helpful”, as containing a “Wealth of Information” and a “Great design”.

Foundations and Disabled Living Foundation join forces to deliver new training to foster independent living.

Date: 6 September 2012

Potentially millions more people in the UK could live independently and safely at home if they had the right equipment to assist in daily living. That is what people want, but currently awareness of equipment that can help is low and there are not enough trained staff to provide assessment and information. This has driven Foundations and the Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) to launch “Wellbeing at Home”.

“Wellbeing at Home” will deliver tailored, practical training for housing and community staff working to promote independence. Courses will be built from the Trusted Assessor programme pioneered by DLF, and others, to deliver skills in assessment and knowledge in recommending and fitting small aids to daily living (SADLs).
