What we are consulting on
We are developing a Housing Assistance Policy in order to improve the assistance it can give to older and vulnerable people living in Bedford Borough and make best use of the Disabled Facilities Grant funding it has available.
This consultation aims to make sure that what we are proposing meets both identified needs and what our service users, stakeholders and community tell us.
