Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) Framework (North East Lincolnshire)

Deadline Extended 2nd March 2020

The Disabled Facilities Grant is a mandatory Government grant, administered by local Council; funds a range of works that will help a disabled person remain in their home. ENGIE’s DFG Technical Team on behalf of North East Lincolnshire Council is seeking suitably qualified contractors for their new Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) Framework.

The framework delivers the Authority’s Disabled Facilities Grants, which provides essential adaptations to give disabled persons better freedom of movement around the house, emergency grants to owner occupiers unable to finance emergency repairs and Home Appreciation Loans to eligible owner occupiers to allow them to bring the property up to a Decent Homes Standard.

The Disabled Facilities Grant allows for:

  • Adaptations of bathrooms for people who are unable to use a conventional shower or bath.
  • Home improvement works including damp proofing, electrical works, plumbing and heating works, minor adaptations to kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, repair/renew/alter windows, doors and roof.
  • Major adaptations works including property extensions, complex cases where major adaptions are made internally to a property to meet the client’s needs.
  • Ramps; permanent and temporary ramps to allow access into and out of the home.

The framework will provide a mechanism for these works to be carried. The number of contractors the Authority is seeking is will be determined by the number of successful tenderers.

ENGIE’s procurement team will be holding a drop in session for Contractors wanting more information or needing assistance with YORtender. Contractors can attend a drop in session on Monday 03 February 2020 from 10am – 4pm at New Oxford House, 2 George Street, Grimsby DN31 1HB
