Event description

Description

The DFG Champions Roadshows are back in April and filling up fast. It's great to see that other people enjoy them as much as we do! Since we introduced them in 2016 they've become a fixture in the calendar, with a mix of the latest news, informative content, local good practice, meeting up with old colleagues, networking new contacts and seeing the best products. As always they are free to attend thanks to the sponsorship of AKW and Stannah.

This time around we've got the latest news on the DFG Review including views from Better Care Fund leads in the run-up to the release of the Social Care Green Paper. We'll also be asking you to help us prioritise the recommendations from the Review.

No matter how well we plan our adaptation scheme, the final product is only as good as the contractors we use. Trustmark will be coming along to tell us about developments with the only Government endorsed trader register, how you can use it for adaptations and key requirements for anyone also managing energy efficiency projects.

Versus Arthritis are releasing a major new report on home adaptations and they'll be presenting their findings. And we'll also hear from GoodGym which may be of interest both personally and professionally.

One of the things we found from working on the DFG Review is how little correlation there is between characteristics of local authorities and good delivery of DFGs. Size, type, budget, demographics, housing stock, political persuasion – whichever way you line up the data there are good and not-so-good examples.

However, we have also noticed that the best performing local authorities are far more likely to attend the Roadshows. Not to say that the Roadshows are the reason why they perform well, but I think that people who make time to engage with others and expose themselves to good practice are much more likely to continually develop the services they deliver.

If you've never been to one of our events before it would be great to see you at a Roadshow this year. We travel around the country so that you don't have to!
