Adaptions. We've been fighting with our council over changing out wetroom

Hi! My wife and I both have Spina Bifida. We live in a local authority flat and for the past year we have been fighting with our Council over changing our current Wetroom and putting in an adapted bath with a hoist, to suit us better as we age. The Council have agreed that it would be safe for us, BUT we cannot get a DFG and are being pushed to finance it ourselves. We have tried engaging with the Council Housing Dept, but they are not being very helpful, and will not tell us why! It's so frustrating

We have raised £2540 out of a total of £8800, we really feel we need an advocate to help, but do not know where to start! The local CAB still have barriers up post-covid.
