Disability and housing

Below you will find useful resources and information on disability and housing. A person is defined in the Equality Act 2010 as having a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment which has substantial and long term adverse effects on the person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. This includes physical disabilities, sensory disabilities, mental ill health, learning disabilities and difficulties, autistic spectrum disorder, and certain health conditions for example HIV and Cancer. Organisations should strive to remove barriers that disabled people may face to accessing their services and gaining equality of opportunity, embedding the social model rather than the medical model of disability in their work. This approach is reflected in the resources below.

Please note we have a separate page with information about Mental Health and housing.
