DFG Champions

In every local authority area there are DFG Champions. They are committed to securing the best outcomes for older and disabled people in their area, but they also know that the DFG process can be overly complicated and want to improve it. DFG Champions could be managers, caseworkers, technical officers, occupational therapists, grants officers, builders, manufacturers, etc. 


The DFG Champions initiative, launched in September 2016, advocates for good practice and supports change in the delivery of the DFG programme. It includes the DFG Champions roadshows, which aim to link up all the dedicated professionals who help thousands of people to adapt their homes every year. 

See highlights from our previous roadshows by using the menu on the left hand side.
