Disabled Facilities Grants petition launched

Disabled Facilities Grants petition launched

Our numbers obsessed Editor has discovered that on top of failing to prevent avoidable injuries, the underfunding of the Disabled Facilities Grant may have cost the taxpayer more than £47 billion in the last 5 years.

“The more I think about it, the less sense it makes. I hope that different areas of Government will work together to make sure disabled people have the adaptations they need and have been legally entitled to for 20 years.”
