Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 and its interface with Disabled Facilities Grant – Practice Guidance

July 2018

This guidance has been produced jointly with the Royal College of Occupational Therapists.

When a Disabled Facilities Grant is being considered, this is the guidance that should be followed to ensure the requirements of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act are being met.

This guidance is provided on an advisory basis and for a primary audience of Housing Professionals, Occupational Therapists as well as social workers and managers. It is not intended to be comprehensive but to set out the key issues to be considered and it should be read and considered alongside the details of the relevant Acts, Regulations, Codes of Practice, Guidance and Council requirements.
