A consultation to introduce service standards on housing adaptations to support disabled and older people to live more independently for as long as possible in their own home, has been launched by Welsh Government Housing and Regeneration Minister Rebecca Evans.

At present the system for delivering housing adaptations in Wales is complex, which reflects the range of different funding sources and organisations involved in care and support arrangements.

The consultation sets out a range of standards that service providers of housing adaptations should work towards to make their delivery more consistent and fair throughout Wales. This includes setting expectations on communication and the quality of the service provided.

The standards also include expected timeframes and provide clarity on what eligibility checks are required for each level of home adaptation.

The consultation also aims to set clear definitions of Small, Medium and Large Housing Adaptation.
