The Department of the Environment and Local Government operates a grant scheme that aims to improve the living conditions of elderly people who live in unsanitary or unfit accommodation, but who have neither the financial means to pay for remedial works, nor the capacity to arrange them. The scheme is operated at local level by the Health Boards on behalf of the Department. The report presents the results of an examination that assessed how the scheme is implemented. It also looked at how the implementing agencies measure the impact of the scheme on those in need, and the system and procedures in place to evaluate the scheme's overall effectiveness.
