West Lancashire, to ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, “What steps his Department is taking to ensure access to the Disabled Facilities Grant for older tenants and their landlords in the private rented sector”. Hansard source (Citation: HC Deb, 19 February 2020, cW)
Luke Hall Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Housing, Communities and Local Government) “Anyone can apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant, including people living in private rented accommodation, subject to a means test and an assessment of need. Tenure should not impact a person’s ability to access the home adaptations they need. The Government also funds Foundations, the national body for home improvement agencies. Foundations works closely with local authorities to promote best practice in the delivery of home adaptations, including providing information and advice to older people living in private rented accommodation and their landlords”.
