Use of Disabled Facilities Grant in context of Regulatory Reform Order 2002

Hello,

We are exploring the use of DFG grant (which now forms part of the broader Better Care Fund) on a broader range of capital and revenue projects across the Council.

Advice from Foundations, link below, indicates the grant can be used for a broad range of activities :

...and decision is ultimately a local one as long as there is an agreed local policy.

Although we propose running by our external auditors at planning meetings, does anyone have any examples innovative or flexible use of DFG to address wider health priorities ?

Thank you,

Josh
