This document describes the various statutory duties laid upon both social services and housing authorities in relation to their adaptations service. It draws on identified good practice from local authorities across the country in advising on the key issues about how the service should be organised and the full process of delivery from first contact with a client to the completion of the adaptation. The purpose of an adaptation is to modify disabling environments in order to restore or enable independent living, privacy, confidence and dignity for individuals and their families. It is therefore not primarily a matter of building work, the provision of equipment or otherwise modifying a dwelling, but providing an individualised solution to the problems of people experiencing a disabling environment. The primary purpose of this document is to advise local authorities on how they can establish a first class service which can deliver adaptations to the homes of disabled people in order to meet their needs and statutory entitlements.
