RaSP review services and hold us to account for our decisions, performance and conduct.  The Panel's work influences our decisions and helps to drive improvements to our services. 

RaSP took a closer look at aids and adaptations processes and how Disabled Facilities Grants are administered.  This review was presented to the Howard Cottage Board in March 2018.  A summary of the actions taken in response to the recommendations is captured in the document linked below:
