Housing associations and home adaptations: making it work smoothly

This research and development project aimed to assist housing associations and local authorities to establish fair, efficient and effective arrangements for carrying out home adaptations. The report covers legislation and funding policy on adaptations; barriers to effective partnership, which included uncertainty about the law and guidance, structural factors and poor communications; and setting up an adaptation agreement. Three actual agreements were also studied in detail from Leeds City Council, East London Housing Partnership East Sub Regional Adaptations Protocol for RSLs and Stockport Housing Partnership.
