Foundations – Adaptations for Behaviours that Challenge

Foundations – the National Body for Home Improvement Agencies in England has published an excellent Guide to Adaptations for Children and Young People with Behaviours that Challenge.

The 45-page guide highlights the role of adaptations in meeting the needs of disabled young people – and emphasises that disabled facilities grants are not only to facilitate access to and around a property but also to make it safe for the disabled person and/or the other occupants.

The guide has a particular focus on the needs of those with significant sensory and other impairments: needs that can often only be met by the building of an extension to a property, with the consequence that grants for young people often need to be much higher than for older people.
