Housing for disabled people: have your sayHousing poster for the EHRC housing consultation

The Equality and Human Rights Commission Scotland (EHRC) want to hear from disabled people in Scotland about their housing experiences. They want to understand whether the availability of accessible and adaptable housing, and the support services around it, fulfils disabled people’s rights to live independently.

Closing date: Tuesday 18 April 2017 

There are three questionnaires, one for each group they would particularly like to hear from:

This is part of a UK consultation and EHRC want to hear the views and experiences of disabled people and organisations on housing and tenancy support provision. This includes the effect it has on disabled people’s choice and control over their housing situation and their right to independent living.

They also want to hear from housing providers, including housing associations, Arm’s Length Management Organisations (ALMOs) and private landlords. They want to hear about how they allocate homes and monitor and plan to meet the housing and tenancy support needs of disabled people. They are also interested to hear about any good practice and barriers they face in doing this.
