There are 13.9 million disabled people in the UK – one in five of the population. Yet only a staggering 7% of homes in England are accessible. This equates to four-fifths of disabled people living in unsuitable homes.
That’s why Disability Horizons have partnered with Branch Properties, specialists in accessible housing, to create the Ultimate Guide to Finding an Accessible Home. The fact that people with disabilities face discrimination is never more obvious than when you start searching for houses or flats that provide adequate wheelchair access or safe living for other specific needs.
Ironically, the accessible housing market is not particularly ‘accessible’, and can be difficult to navigate without spending a lot of time collecting information and research. Disability Horizons have done all the hard work for you and compiled over a decade-worth of combined experience to create this guide. It will give you a comprehensive overview of everything you need to know to help you find the new accessible home – from start to finish.
It will help you to understand the housing market and available accessibility features, adaptations and their costs, and give you practical and straight-forward advice on how to find a property that suits your needs, whether you’re buying or renting. It also includes handy checklists and notes sections where you can write down thoughts on exactly what you need.
