The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) is now including guidance from Foundations on how a disabled person can access a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) through its self-help tool, AskSARA.

AskSARA is an award-winning online self-help guide providing expert advice and information on products and equipment for older and disabled people. The personalised reports produced through AskSARA give tailored advice on ways to help with daily activities and stay independent in the home. Users can also view additional information relating to DFGs in reports generated within Your Home and other relevant sections on the AskSARA website.

A DFG is a grant administered by a local housing authority to a disabled person to help pay for essential housing adaptations. They are available to all eligible people (subject to a means test) and can be accessed through local Housing Authorities and Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs). Foundations, the national body for Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs) has been tasked by government to promote and ensure good practice across the DFG sector.

DFGs operate across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. For details of schemes in Scotland see Disability Information Scotland

AskSARA is also available to be licensed by third parties who can change its visual identity to incorporate it into their own services and link to it from their web domains, adding their own signposting. For more information email: marketing@dlf.org.uk
