Habinteg Campaigns for More Accessible Housing

Habinteg has launched a campaign recently that urges the government, councilors and developers to recognise the importance of creating accessible homes. The organisation that champions the creation of more accessible and inclusive housing is hoping their campaign will make the government and property developing companies will start to create more properties that have accessible features in order to meet the national demand. A number of events have been held in recent weeks by tenants in order to tell their own stories and challenges in order to highlight how vital it is that accommodation is offered to suit a range of different needs. The staff and tenants of Habinteg have also paid a visit to Parliament in order to meet MPs from right across the political spectrum in order to further make their voices hear about the creation of more accessible homes. During their meeting in Parliament, the staff and tenants met, among others Melanie Onn MP of the Shadow housing team and the Minister for Disabled People, Penny Mordaunt MP. Habinteg is the leading national provider of affordable and accessible homes and support services. The organisation supports inclusion through the creation of sustainable neighbourhoods of Lifetime Homes and wheelchair standard properties for both disabled and non-disabled people to share and enjoy. The organisation uses their knowledge and experience in order to fight negative social issues and educate as well as promoting the rights of disabled people and boost accessibility standards in the housing sector. It is as important now as it ever was to promote the case from accessible and inclusive homes for the entire population. Habinteg was formed from the belief that with accessible homes, more people can live independently and can lead to further inclusion in community life as well as education and the workforce. In a time with stricter budgets, increasing the number of accessible homes available can help money go further in terms of health and social care.
